Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A study of the endemicity of malaria was carried out in two refugee camps in Sudan, and the advantages and disadvantages of treating either all febrile cases or only confirmed cases of malaria were considered. Based on the information obtained during the survey, guidelines for the treatment of malaria in such refugee camps are proposed.
