Flood affected Districts, State of Emergency Declared, Malawi  


Nets: 80,000 LLINs
When: Feb-Mar 15
Distributed by:  Concern Universal

Heavy rains and subsequent widespread flooding in Malawi in January 2015 left 79 people dead, 153 missing in one district, 174,000 people displaced in three districts and 638,000 people affected. A state of emergency was declared in 15 of Malawi's 28 districts.




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).
