Balaka District 2015, Malawi  


Nets: 235,000 LLINs
When: Mar 16
Distributed by:  Concern Universal

This distribution will be a re-coverage distribution following on from the district-wide universal coverage distribution AMF and Concern Universal carried out in October 2013. It will achieve universal coverage (all sleeping spaces covered) of the district's population of 412,000.




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).
