Asymptomatic low-density malaria infections are contributing to ongoing malaria transmission especially in areas close to reaching elimination objectives. According to ongoing studies, the ability of individuals to carry low-density malaria infections and have minimal clinical symptoms is believed to be the consequence of exposure-related clinical immunity, resulting in the suppression of parasitemia, and has been observed in both high- and low-transmission settings (American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene). Standard rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) are reported missing a proportion of sub-microscopic malaria infections (Malaria Journal). Highly sensitive RDTs (HS-RDT) offer the ability to detect parasite densities lower than that [...]
