With this study, the authors aimed to evaluate current practices and standards of care for childhood febrile illness at different levels of the health-care system, in Southern Province, Zambia. They conclude that various health system challenges resulted in a substantial proportion of children receiving insufficient management and treatment of febrile illness. Interventions are needed including strengthening the availability of commodities and improving diagnosis and treatment of febrile illness.
