Cover of Universal versus conditional three-day follow up visit for children with uncomplicated fever at the community level: design of a cluster randomized, community-based, non-inferiority trial in Tanganyika, Democratic Republic of Congo

The current recommendation within Integrated Community Case Management guidelines that all children presenting with uncomplicated fever and no danger signs be followed up after three days may not be necessary. Such fevers often resolve rapidly (usually 48-96 h), and previous studies suggest that expectant home care for uncomplicated fever can be safely recommended. We aim to determine the non-inferiority of a conditional versus a universal follow-up visit fort these children.
