Abstract

The past decade was a milestone in the development of malaria diagnostic technology. Today, a variety of simplified and rapid malaria diagnostic devices, collectively referred to as 'dipsticks', is available. This paper discusses the potential roles of these devices, and obstacles to their use, in supporting malaria control strategies.
