Responses to detecting asymptomatic cases start at the individual level with prompt treatment of those found through RCD to be infected. Then focused preventive interventions such as distribution of insecticide treated bednets can be provided to those in the cluster or village. Follow-up would be needed for such ‘hot spots'. Research is needed to determine the extent that asymptomatic, submicroscopic and subpatent parasitemia contribute to continued malaria transmission.
