Modelling the cost-effectiveness of mass screening and treatment for reducing Plasmodium falciparum malaria burden

This paper reports simulations of the incremental cost-effectiveness of well-conducted MSAT campaigns as a strategy for P. falciparum malaria disease-burden reduction in settings with varying receptivity (ability of the combined vector population in a setting to transmit disease) and access to case management.
