Approximately 40 percent of outpatient attendance and over 20 percent of hospital admissions in Uganda are reported as malaria-related. The USAID MAPD program supports the reduction of malaria morbidity and mortality through improving the implementation of core interventions, including service delivery improvements informed by clinical and mortality audits — an approach not widely adopted in Uganda. This study compared trends in severe morbidity and mortality attributable to malaria in program and non-program districts.
