Figure 2

Figure 2. Probability of dying of untreated severe malaria.. From: Likely Health Outcomes for Untreated Acute Febrile Illness in the Tropics in Decision and Economic Models; A Delphi Survey.

The top panel shows results for low transmission or epidemic prone areas; the bottom panel are the results for medium/high transmission areas.

Figure 3

Figure 3. Probability that non-malarial febrile illness warrants antibiotics.. From: Likely Health Outcomes for Untreated Acute Febrile Illness in the Tropics in Decision and Economic Models; A Delphi Survey.

Non-malarial illnesses included only those where no other obvious cause of illness is present (e.g. ear, soft tissue or urine infection).

Figure 1

Figure 1. Probability of developing severe illness for untreated malaria cases.. From: Likely Health Outcomes for Untreated Acute Febrile Illness in the Tropics in Decision and Economic Models; A Delphi Survey.

The top panel shows results for low transmission or epidemic prone areas; the bottom panel are the results for medium/high transmission areas. The median in both settings decreases with age and the estimates also become less dispersed.

Figure 6. Variation in net benefit of the RDT.. From: Likely Health Outcomes for Untreated Acute Febrile Illness in the Tropics in Decision and Economic Models; A Delphi Survey.

The net-benefit varies in response to the range of parameter estimates in the low (left) and high (right) transmission intensity areas. The vertical axes indicate the net benefit using the median values from the survey. The grey bars relate to estimates that are lower than the median, while the black ones indicate the range of expert estimates higher than the median. The lighter areas of the background indicate a positive net-benefit while the darker areas are where the use of RDT would not be cost-effective. Q 1–5: Questions 1–5.
