Malaria is a parasitic disease transmitted through the bite of a female anopheles mosquito. Over 80% of malaria deaths occur in Africa (World Bank, 2005). There are approximately 70 000 to 110 000 deaths yearly in Uganda as a result of malaria, and 25-40% of all outpatient visits and 9-14% of inpatient deaths are malaria-related (USAID, 2006).
