CHWs provide door-to-door treatment for children experiencing Malaria in Burkina Faso, but to reduce the spread of the disease CHWs must cover a wide geographic area . André Lin Ouédraogo and colleagues developed a microplanning model to help CHWs better plan how to provide treatment to their assigned region. Implementation of this model reduced walking distance by 25% and improved coverage from 37.3% of households to 58.3%.
