Post-distribution

The two objectives of post-distribution activity are i) to monitor and report on the continued use of the nets (achieved via six-monthly Post-Distribution net use and condition Check-Ups (PDCUs) which collect data from 5% of the households, randomly selected and visited unannounced, that received nets during the distribution) and ii) to assess the impact in terms of reduced malaria to which the nets contribute (achieved via monthly malaria case rate and mortality data, received quarterly).
