Association Between Malaria Control and Paediatric Blood Transfusions in Rural Zambia: an Interrupted Time-Series Analysis

This study published in the Malaria Journal investigates the association between malaria control scale-up and the use of pediatric blood transfusions, which can reduce mortality among children with severe malarial anemia. The study aims to better understand the effect of malaria control scale-up on availability of hospital-level resources, specifically blood, which can be used by […]
