This implementation guide is a step-by-step methodological approach to implementing the use of rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) as a diagnostic tool in malaria control programmes. While information is widely available on the need for parasite-based diagnosis through the use of malaria RDTs, there is limited guidance on how this should be achieved. This manual seeks to provide specific instructions on RDT implementation and incorporation into national malaria programmes.
