Abstract

With the intensification of malaria efforts in Uganda, accurate and timely data are needed to monitor impact and guide control program planning. We present trends in malaria burden from six health facilities; Aduku (community received IRS), Nagongera and Kamwezi (ITNs distributed), Walukuba, Kasambya and Kihihi (no major intervention). Between 2008 and 2011, the proportion of the <5 testing positive for malaria significantly decreased in Aduku (66% to 34%), Nagongera (61% to 41%), and Kamwezi (54% to 24%). Significant increases were seen in Kasambya (41% to 51%) and Kihihi (28% to 44%), while TPR remained stable at Walukuba (41% to 45%).
