ABSTRACT:  Malaria is one of the main causes of health and socio economic burden in subsahara african countries affecting all age groups but with serious effect on children and pregnant women. This paper focuses on the role of community health nurses in managing challenges of malaria among under five children. It examines the extent of the burden of the disease on the children and significance of prompt and correct diagnosis on efective management of the disease. It also explains prevention of malaria at primary, secondary and tertiary levels. Various barriers posing challenges to effective management of malaria are highlighted in the paper.

In conclusion, the community health nurses are implored to identify and address prevailing local beliefs about causes of fever and the socio economic barriers to accessing prompt health care for the children
