Research protocol for the KAP study of Malaria treatment in Suriname

In order to completely eradicate malaria in Suriname, it is important that gold miners and other inhabitants of gold mining areas test for malaria, use the prescribed treatment, and use the treatment correctly. The Government of Suriname malaria program aims to launch an intervention campaign to motivate gold miners to improve their treatment behavior. In this context, the objective of the present study is collect baseline data on malaria treatment behavior in small-scale gold mining areas as well as information that can be used to design an intervention campaign. This will contribute to the broader goal of improving access to adequate treatment and adherence to treatment regimes in gold mining areas and Paramaribo, and thus contribute to the eradication of malaria in Suriname.
