Dowa District, Malawi: 6-months post-distribution check-up data entry

The data collection phase of the 6-months post-distribution net use check-up (PDCU) in Dowa District, Malawi, is now complete.  Five percent of households, randomly selected, across 33 health centre areas in the district are being visited, unannounced, to assess net use and condition.
 
The data will be entered in Malawi in the coming days 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: 396,900 LLINs were distributed in Dowa District in March to May and October 2015.
