dc.description.abstract The thesis set out to explore how households cope with the costs of malaria and the implications of malaria cost burdens for household livelihoods and vulnerability. It uses a conceptual framework that takes a holistic approach to understand vulnerability and the link between malaria and livelihood change. In order to investigate these issues, the study was designed to meet five main objectives: to improve the understanding on the economic burden of malaria; to identify factors that make households vulnerable to the costs of malaria; to identify and explore coping strategies; to understand the role of health care providers in aggravating cost burdens and; to inform policy debates on how to improve access to effective malaria treatment and protect households from high illness costs. en_ZA
