Malaria is among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in Uganda, primarily in children under five and pregnant women. In 2018–2019, nearly 60 percent of under-fives sought care and advice from private health facilities (HFs). While the National Malaria Control Division recognizes the invaluable role of private HFs in providing care to children under five, national efforts in malaria-related capacity development have largely centered on public-sector facilities. Quality of care within Uganda’s private HFs remains largely undocumented. This study, therefore, aims to assess the quality of care at private HFs and the factors impacting effective case management.
