Abstract: Introduction: We investigated the association between demographic and behavioral factors and non-adherence to antimalarial therapy. Methods: A demographic questionnaire and 5-item self-reported questionnaire regarding non-adherence were completed by 135 patients after treatment for Plasmodium vivax. Results: Treatment interruption, but not demographic factors, was significantly associated with non-adherence to therapy. The likelihood of non-adherence was 5.16 times higher when the patients felt better than when they felt worse. The relative risk of parasitic resurgence was 3.04 times higher in non-adherent patients. Conclusions: Treatment interruption is significantly associated with treatment adherence.
