The World Health Organization recommends prompt malaria diagnosis through microscopy or mRDTs, and treatment with an effective antimalarial as key interventions to control malaria.Unfortunately, in sub-Saharan Africa, patients and care providers often do not test fever cases before treating them for malaria.

We sought to assess health facilities’ capacity to provide quality malaria diagnosis and treatment in 43 districts.
