This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Diagnostic test accuracy). The objectives are as follows:
To assess the diagnostic accuracy of rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) for detecting P vivax malaria parasitaemia in people living in malaria‐endemic areas who present to ambulatory healthcare facilities with symptoms suggestive of malaria, and to identify which types and brands of commercial tests best detect P vivax malaria.
