Since the late 1950s, most malaria surveillance and treatment in rural areas of Latin America has been carried out by networks of unpaid community malaria workers, known as Volunteer Collaborators, who are selected and supervised by staff of the national malaria services (NMSs) in each country.
In spite of the free and readily accessible antimalarial treatment available at these Volunteer Collaborator posts, many residents continue to seek treatment elsewhere and in most cases take doses of antimalarials that are insufficient to cure their infections.
