Modeling the cost-effectiveness of mass screening and treatment for reducing Plasmodium falciparum malaria burden

Abstract

Background Past experience and modeling suggest that, in most cases, mass treatment strategies are not likely to succeed in interrupting Plasmodium falciparum malaria transmission. However, this does not preclude their use to reduce disease burden. Mass screening and treatment (MSAT) is preferred to mass drug administration (MDA), as the latter involves… (More)
