Reactive case detection (RACD) around falciparum malaria cases in Cambodia is performed as rapid diagnostic test-based household screening around index cases, typically with a low detection rate. We improved RACD by including individuals occupationally co-exposed with index cases and PCR-based diagnosis. The positivity rate increased 20-fold, from 0.16% to 3.9%.
