The impact of pre-departure screening and treatment on notifications of malaria in refugees in south-east Queensland
MetadataShow full item record
This study aimed to investigate changes in the notification rate of malaria in refugees over a period of national policy change on pre-departure screening. Notifying clinicians were interviewed to complete a standardised enhanced surveillance form. A decline in refugee malaria notifications occurred after implementation of a national policy to offer pre-departure malaria screening and treatment as necessary to refugees. Surveillance data support the benefit of offering pre-departure screening and treatment as necessary to refugees.
