Lowassa A et al. – Distance to the health centre influenced malaria treatment seeking behaviors, and the number of visits made by the household members.

Increasing the number of health facilities close to rural areas will improve malaria treatment seeking behavior, case management and hence reduce malaria–associated morbidities, especially in high risk groups.
