Title

Phase IV: A cluster-randomised controlled trial to assess the impact of combined strategies (impregnated bed nets + Home management of malaria oriented by Rapid Diagnosis Test) on severe malaria morbidity in children aged 6 to 59 months in Burkina Faso

Objectives

To show the additional benefit in terms of reduction of severe malaria morbidity by adding the HMM to bed nets for children aged 6-59 months living in a seasonal malaria transmission area and to estimate the incidence of severe malaria in children aged 6-59 months living under insecticides impregnated bed nets with access to home based management of malaria strategy in a seasonal malaria transmission area
