Limitations of malaria reactive case detection in an area of low and unstable transmission on the Myanmar-Thailand border

Abstract:
Background Reactive case detection is an approach that has been proposed as a tool for malaria elimination in lowtransmission settings. It is an intuitively justified approach based on the concept of space–time clustering of malaria cases. When an index malaria clinical case is detected, it triggers reactive screening and treatment in the index house and neighbouring houses. However, the efficacy of this approach at varying screening radii and malaria prevalence remains i... Expand abstract
