Description:
Malaria is a major health problem in Nigeria accounting for most of the hospital admission across all ages. Plasmodiunm falciparum is the major malaria parasite causing malaria in the country. The adoption of the policies of ITN commenced in 2001, IPT in 2004 and ACTs in 2006; and these interventions scaled up within the period under study. Despite this scale-up, and the increased funding from all sources, internal and external, malaria burden is still significant in the country. The objective of the study is to assess the impact of malaria control activities implementation on the malaria epidemiological burden in Nigeria for the period 2000 to 2008.
