Uncomplicated Malaria Management Practices and Cost of Illness Implications on Patients in Nigeria: A Systematic Review of Evidence

Nanloh S Jimam, Nahlah E Ismail.

Abstract
Background: High prevalence of malaria has been reported in Nigeria.
However, there are scanty information on the management practices
and cost burdens of the disease on patients. The purpose of this review
was to document related previous studies on healthcare workers and
patients’ uncomplicated malaria management practices, financial cost and
intangible burdens on patients in Nigeria.
Methods: A systematic review of literature was carried out using the
preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses’
(PRISMA) approach on previous related studies published between 2005
and 2018 in Medical Subject Headings (MeSH), Medline®, PubMED®, Web
of Science™-Clarivate Analytics, Embase, Global Health Database, Google
Scholar, websites of government department and major multilateral
organizations involved in malaria control in Nigeria, and manual references
of relevant studies. Only articles that met the inclusion criteria were finally
evaluated.
Results: Out of identified and retrieved 336 relevant articles, 175 were
identified as duplicate and removed. Further screening of titles and
abstracts of the remaining 161 articles led to identification of 100 articles
and their full texts were further reviewed which resulted in identification
of 15 patients-, 13 healthcare workers-, and 9 cost burdens-related
studies, with adequate data related to patients’ and healthcare workers’
management practices, and cost burdens of managing uncomplicated
malaria in Nigeria. Many studies (36.11%) were conducted in the southeastern
region of the country, while the least percentage (5.56%) was
from north-eastern part of the country.
Conclusion: Inappropriate healthcare workers’ and patients’ management
practices based on malaria treatment guideline were observed, which was
reflected in the significant cost implications on patients. There were scanty
information on studies from some regions of the country, with observed
limitations in study methodologies and sparse information on validity and
stability of study scales used.

Key words: Artemisinin-based combination therapy, cost burdens, healthcare workers, uncomplicated malaria management practices, patients.
