A response from senior malaria expert, Cameron Taylor:

Dear user,
Thank you for providing code with your question. It is greatly appreciated!

Everything looks correct with the code but with malaria microscopy you need to include hml32==6 since there were some tests that were undetermined but they still should be included in the number of children tested (or the denominator of the indicator).
tab rdtmalpos if hc1>=6 & hc1<=59 & hv103==1 & hml33==0 & (hml35==0|hml35==1) [iweight=wgt]
tab micmalpos if hc1>=6 & hc1<=59 & hv103==1 & hml33==0 &(hml32==0|hml32==1|hml32==6) [iweight=wgt]
Let us know if you have additional questions

Cameron
