Dedza District, Malawi: 12-months post-distribution check-up data entry

The data collection phase of the 12-months post-distribution net use check-up (PDCU) in Dedza District, Malawi, is now complete.  Five percent of households, randomly selected, across 33 health centre areas in the district have been visited, unannounced, to assess net use and condition.
 
The data are now being entered in Malawi and may be viewed as they are entered. As soon as all data have been entered we will publish a summary of the results.
 
The specific nature of the data - at the health centre level - means the District Health Officer (DHO), health centre leaders, community leaders and other health workers are able to decide what targeted malaria control intervention might be appropriate in specific areas. In circumstances where health systems and resources are stretched, information that assists with targeted interventions can help with effective use of resources and that is the aim of this information.
 
Background: 290,770 LLINs were distributed in Dedza District in September and October 2014.
