Stratum Transmission intensity (P. falciparum cases per 1000 population per year in 2013) Catchment population in area Number of villages Interventions during high transmission season (October 2014 to January 2015)
1 Very low transmission (< 5 cases/1000/year) 4753 5 Case investigation with FTAT/FSTAT+ focal drug administration for outbreak
2 Low transmission (≥ 5 and < 15 cases/1000/year) 9695 6 PECADOM++
3 Low-moderate transmission (≥ 15 cases/1000/year) 24,925 46 MTAT at the beginning of the 2014 transmission season (September 2014) followed by PECADOM++
  1. FTAT (focal test and treat): all individuals in the index case household were tested with an RDT and treated if positive
  2. FSTAT (focal screen, test and treat): all individuals in the five closest households to the index case household within a 100-m radius were screened for risk factors (reported fever, recent travel or not sleeping under a bed net) and those with at least one were tested with an RDT and treated if positive
  3. PECADOM++: weekly mass fever screen, test and treat along with reactive focal FTAT
