BackgroundWhere malaria endemicity is low, control programmes need increasingly sensitive tools for monitoring malaria transmission intensity (MTI) and to better define health priorities. A cross-sectional survey was conducted in a low endemicity area of the Peruvian north-western coast to assess the MTI using both molecular and serological tools.MethodsEpidemiological, parasitological and serological data were collected from 2,667 individuals in three settlements of Bellavista district, in May… CONTINUE READING
