Correction to: Prevalence and clinical impact of malaria infections detected with a highly sensitive HRP2 rapid diagnostic test in Beninese pregnant women

Correction to: Malar J (2020) 19:188https://doi.org/10.1186/s12936-020-03261-1

Following publication of the original article [1], the authors flagged that there is an error present in Table 5.

As a result of an error in the statistical program used to categorize women based on ‘gravidity’, some ‘secundigravidae’ have been (erroneously) classified as ‘multigravidae’.

Consequently, the performance values based on gravidity, which are secondary results, are incorrect in the table.

To amend this error, the corrected Table 5 is provided in this correction.

Table 5 Performance of uRDT and cRDT against qPCR, according to the trimester of pregnancy, gravidity, and presence of fever

Finally, in addition to the above, the author name Nicaise Tuikue Ndam has been misspelled in the article as ‘Nicaise Tuike Ndam’; please find the corrected name in this correction.

The authors apologize for any inconvenience caused.
