Project: Impact of RTS,S/AS01 vaccine and insecticide treated bednets on neurobehavioural impairment and school participation in children from rural Kenya

Acronym Mal-Brain study (Reference Number: TMA2017CDF-1903)
Duration 01/03/2019 - 28/02/2022
Project Topic Falciparum malaria has remained an important cause of mortality and morbidity, despite with widely recognized decline in malaria in Africa. Over half million malaria deaths were reported in 2015 particularly in children, and malaria was associated with 795 per 100,000 disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) in 2016. Severe malaria causes neurobehavioural impairments (behavioural disorders, seizures and cognitive and language impairments), some of which have high malaria-attributable fractions (>90%). In addition, the effect of chronic parasitisation and repeated episodes of mild malaria on the neurobehavioural outcomes is not well documented. Young children (
