  1. Uncomplicated malaria—axillary temperature at or above 37.5 °C and presence of malaria parasites by microscopy; afebrile—axillary temperature below 37.5 °C and absence of malaria parasites by microscopy as well as negative by a malaria RDT
  2. F female, M male, BG blood group, PD Parasite density measured as parasite, p per microlitre; min minimum, max maximum, IQR interquartile range (25–75%); RDT HRP2 based malaria rapid diagnostic test positivity rate, Temp axillary temperature, ND not done, NP no parasite observed by microscopy
