The US President’s Malaria Initiative’s Malaria Action Program for Districts (MAPD) project supports malaria control in nine districts in south-central Uganda. Interventions include healthcare worker malaria case management mentorship and quarterly performance reviews. This study sought to compare health worker practices in project and non-project districts. District Health Information System data from health facilities in the intervention and control areas were analysed. Three outcomes were assessed: proportion of suspected malaria cases that were tested at outpatient departments; suspected cases with a negative test result treated with antimalarial drugs; and malaria-related deaths in inpatient departments.
