Abstract: Malaria is a major cause of morbidity and mortality amongst infants and children less than 5 years of age, and current research suggest that cerebral malaria-a manifestation of severe malaria is associated with long-term neurodevelopmental sequelae in some survivors. The long term neurocognitive complications of cerebral malaria is currently under reported, with little or no established policy platforms to follow up survivors who suffer from its debilitating consequences. The resultant effect of this unmet public health need, is an increased odds of victims growing up with disabling neurocognitive manifestations, which may lead to future economic and societal burdens a region of the world already plunged by poverty and deprivation. In this paper, we present recommendations that could mitigate the long term neurocognitive decline reported in some CM survivors. We advocate the use of preventive strategies of disease- primordial, primary, secondary and tertiary preventions to address this unmet public health need.
