Project Details

ICAP is undertaking a cross-sectional facility-based SARS-CoV-2 prevalence study to assess and estimate the prevalence of symptomatic and asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection among children 5 years and older and adults in health facilities in Malawi.

Fourteen health facilities across eight districts have been purposively selected in partnership with the Ministry of Health and the U.S. Centers pf Disease Control, based on where community transmission is likely occurring as well as attempting to achieve some level of representativeness across the eight districts in all three regions.
