An update on our distribution in Ntcheu District, Malawi

We now have two sets of post-distribution data following the December 2011 to February 2012 distribution of 270,000 nets that achieved universal coverage of a population of 550,000 in Ntcheu District, Malawi and the results are very strong.

A quick summary:  

  1. Malaria rates in March to June 2012 are already 50%, 45%, 40% and 40% lower than in the corresponding months in 2011. 
  2. The six months post-distribution survey of 7,657 households and 15,768 nets showed a hang-up (usage) level of 90% and the percentage of nets in a very good condition is 99% (ninety nine). 
 
We will continue to collect and publish monthly malaria data and hope to see a continued and sustained decline in malaria rates.
