Figure 5

Forest plots of sensitivity and specificity of RDTs with microscopy of placental blood as reference test. The squares represent the calculated specificity and sensitivity of one test within a study; the black line is the 95% confidence interval. Tests with a * in front were excluded from the meta-analysis, because of high risk of bias or complete data was not available; with ** means that a pLDH-based RDT has been used; *** means that a HRP2-Aldolase-based RDT has been used.
