dc.description.abstractBackground: Anaemia is a global public health problem. Children under five years of age living in developing countries (mostly Africa and South- East Asia) are highly affected. Although the causes for anaemia are multifactorial, malaria has been linked to anaemia in children living in malaria-endemic areas. Administering intermittent preventive antimalarial treatment (IPT) to children might reduce anaemia, since it could protect children from new Plasmodium parasite infection (the parasites that cause malaria) and allow their haemoglobin levels to recover. Objectives: To assess the effect of IPT for children with anaemia living in malaria-endemic areas.en_ZA
