Intermittent preventive treatment for malaria and anaemia control in Tanzanian infants; the development and implementation of a public health strategy



Intermittent preventive treatment for malaria and anaemia control in Tanzanian infants; the development and implementation of a public health strategy



Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 103(1): 79-86



Minimizing the time between efficacy studies and public health action is important to maximize health gains. We report the rationale, development and implementation of a district-based strategy for the implementation of intermittent preventive treatment in infants (IPTi) for malaria and anaemia control in Tanzania.
