The Problem

A life-threatening disease

Inefficient diagnostic tools

Malaria is a life-threatening disease that impacts both the public health and the economy.

According to WHO, it is responsible for more than

200 million cases 400'000 deaths

annually.

Most of these cases and deaths are:

Children

(Pregnant) women

The poor

A 100% reduction in malaria cases can result in

2% - 16% increase in average per capita income.

Malaria infected individuals with no symptoms acts as reservoirs for the parasite. They need to be identified and cured to stop malaria transmission and eradicate the disease.

HOWEVER,

rapid diagnostic tests and microscopy fail to efficiently detect these asymptomatic infections due to their low sensitivity.
