Experiences from countries first hit by the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, such as Italy and Spain, demonstrate how quickly COVID-19 can overwhelm any health system and disrupt the delivery of routine health services at every level. This places many populations at risk of dying from existing preventable and/or treatable conditions, such as malaria. Uganda confirmed the first COVID-19 case in March 2020 and the government promptly instituted a total lockdown in the same month. This study was conducted to assess the impact of COVID-19 on routine malaria services.
This poster was presented at the 70th annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
