Abstract:

We discuss the potential public health impact of IPTi by estimating the cases of malaria, anaemia and hospital admissions likely to be averted in different transmission settings; and we review the mechanism of action, choice of drugs regimens, and the effect on immunity of IPTi. IPTi using an efficacious drug is likely to substantially reduce cases of clinical malaria in moderate to high transmission settings. However, geographical heterogeneity in malaria transmission could hamper rolling out IPTi as a national policy.
