Summary: Training of basic-level health workers or mothers in the administration of anti-malarials, either presumptively based on the presence of a fever or based on the result of a rapid diagnostic test, may increase the number of people receive an appropriate antimalarial within 24 hours of evaluation and may reduce all-cause mortality, compared to standard medical evaluation and care.
