Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the diagnostic accuracy of RDTs for detecting malaria parasitaemia and different types of malaria parasite in persons living in malaria endemic areas with symptoms of malaria.

We will investigate heterogeneity in relation to the test and test conditions (index and reference), as well as patients' characteristics and endemicity.
