Every school we recently visited in Uganda had 10% and sometimes 20% of the children sick with malaria. There is a simple kit cost $3 that provides an instant test for malaria and an effective 3 day treatment. ( RDT/ACT) If we can train teachers to pick out the kids who seem to have fever, test them for malaria and start them on treatment, the kids will be treated way faster, get less sick, miss less school and be less likely to pass on the infection through mosquito bites to others. We begin a study trial next month with HEADA Uganda in 4 primary schools there. Lets hope the results are good as this could help children all over the world
