Days at Risk Poster and Paper

Preventing acute rheumatic fever by using the "Days at Risk" concept. Each day that a person is overdue for their BPG injection, is a day they are at risk of ARF. This paper provides more detailed information on the "Days at Risk" concept. Recall at 28 days leads to late secondary prophylaxis as it often takes a number of days to find a client. Consideration could be given to changing routine recall to 21 days.
