6.4  Treatment for fever and malaria

The treatment for fever or malaria is not based on classification of malaria risk. Therefore once you have classified for fever, the treatment is the same. The exception is where there is no malaria risk when you do not have to treat the child with an antimalarial drug.

Treatment for malaria is described in detail in Study Session 8 of Communicable Diseases, Part 1. All the drugs and dosages are listed there, including for children aged over 4 months, and adults.
