    Assessing the impact of differences in malaria transmission intensity on clinical and haematological indices in children with malaria

    Malaria control interventions have led to a decline in transmission intensity in many endemic areas, and resulted in elimination in some areas. This decline, however, will lead to delayed acquisition of protec...
