Targeted Active Case Detection Among High Risk Populations in Southern Lao Peoples Democratic Republic
Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only
This study assesses the effectiveness of targeted active case detection among high-risk populations in Southern Lao Peoples Democratic Republic (PDR). The investigators hypothesize that active case detection using the next generation of HRP-2 rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) can help bridge gaps in identification of high-risk asymptomatic individuals with low density parasitemia, allowing for targeting of this reservoir and thereby reducing transmission. The investigators hypothesize that active case detection (testing and treating positive cases) with these RDTs will lead to a reduction in P. falciparum transmission.
