Rationale and Abstract

Brain infections, like malaria, can impair brain function such as memory, thinking, reasoning and speech. Young children who survived severe malaria, some of whom obtained rapid treatment with a new, effective drug, will be traced and assessed for brain function. Proof that treatment reduces disability, will expedite policy changes to prevent malaria and increase treatment access.
