Abstract: --- - Label: OBJECTIVES NlmCategory: OBJECTIVE content: A Demographic and Health Platform was established in Magude in 2015, prior to the deployment of a project aiming to evaluate the feasibility of malaria elimination in southern Mozambique, named the Magude project. This platform aimed to inform the design, implementation and evaluation of the Magude project, through the identification of households and population; and the collection of demographic, health and malaria information. - Label: SETTING NlmCategory: METHODS content: Magude is a rural district of southern Mozambique which borders South Africa. It has nine peripheral health facilities and one referral health centre with an inpatient ward. - Label: INTERVENTION NlmCategory: METHODS content: "A baseline census enumerated and geolocated all the households, and their resident and non-resident members, collecting demographic and socio-economic information, and data on the coverage and usage of malaria control tools. Inpatient and outpatient data during the 5\xE2\x80\x89years (2010 to 2014) before the survey were obtained from the district health authorities. The demographic platform was updated in 2016." - Label: RESULTS NlmCategory: RESULTS content: "The baseline census conducted in 2015 reported 48\xE2\x80\x89448 (92.1%) residents and 4133 (7.9%) non-residents, and 10\xE2\x80\x89965 households. Magude's population is predominantly young, half of the population has no formal education and the main economic activities are agriculture and fishing. Houses are mainly built with traditional non-durable materials and have poor sanitation facilities. Between 2010 and 2014, malaria was the most common cause of all-age inpatient discharges (representing 20% to 40% of all discharges), followed by HIV (12% to 22%) and anaemia (12% to 15%). In early 2015, all-age bed-net usage was between 21.8% and 27.1%\xE2\x80\x89and the reported coverage of indoor residual spraying varied across the district between 30.7% and 79%." - Label: CONCLUSION NlmCategory: CONCLUSIONS content: This study revealed that Magude has limited socio-economic conditions, poor access to healthcare services and low coverage of malaria vector control interventions. Thus, Magude represented an area where it is most pressing to demonstrate the feasibility of malaria elimination. - Label: TRIAL REGISTRATION NUMBER NlmCategory: BACKGROUND content: NCT02914145; Pre-results.
