Forest plot showing the impact of CHW on anaemia incidence and fever prevalence by random effect analysis. Plot shows risk ratios (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI). Estimates were calculated from data in the papers. Definitions: Anaemia is defined as Hb < 8.0 g/dl [47,48,49] or haematocrit ≤ 24% [39]; Fever was defined as body temperature more than 37.5 °C [28, 30, 38, 39, 41, 48, 49] or reported fever cases [27, 56]. Studies investigating fever included women who had fever since delivery of last child [56]; fever plus parasitaemia [41], fever prevalence within last 1 month [30, 39, 48, 49] and last 2 weeks [27, 28] in general population; and fever prevalence [28] in under 5 children [38]. Please note: due to high heterogeneity results were not pooled across studies quantifying the effect of community-delivered models on risk of anaemia or fever (I-squared = 91.9% and 80.9%, respectively)
