Malawi, Ntcheu District: net use assessment 33-months post-distribution

The 33-months post-distribution net use check-up (PDCU) is currently being conducted in Ntcheu District, Malawi.  Five percent of households, randomly selected, across 37 health centre catchment areas in the district were visited, unannounced, to assess net use and condition.
 
The data are being entered in Malawi now 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.
 
We will provide our assessment of the data once all have been entered.
 
Background: 268,400 LLINs were distributed in Ntcheu District from December 2011 to February 2012.
