The purpose

This study is part of a larger prospective cohort study (JOKA), designed to study the incidence and etiological spectrum of febrile illness occurring during a travel to the tropics, as well as clinical course, care, treatment and outcome of these febrile illness episodes. Its objective is to evaluate the clinical use of malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) by travelers or their peers during travel, as a decision aid for the management of febrile illness in the tropics. If the study demonstrates that malaria can be ruled out safely by travelers themselves using a RDT, a combination of self/peer testing with SBET may become an alternative to antimalarial chemoprophylaxis in travel medicine.

Provided treatments
