Abstract: ABSTRACT Introduction: Malaria is considered one of the global health problems causing close to a million deaths each year. Ninety percent of these deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa and 70% of the deaths are of children under 10 years of age. Malaria is the leading cause of outpatient, inpatient and admissions of children less than ten years of age at health facilities in Uganda. Uganda's high rates of malaria disproportionately affect young children below 10 years and pregnant women in rural areas who experience extreme poverty, limited access to healthcare services, and lack of education.
