What is its purpose?

According to CDC, malaria infection during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, premature delivery, low birth weight, congenital infection, and/or perinatal death. This indicator therefore measures the proportion of pregnant women who spent the previous night in the interviewed households and slept under an insecticide-treated bed net.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with a representative sample of pregnant women:

 

RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTIONS (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)

Q1: Are you currently pregnant?

A1: yes / no / did not respond

 

Q2: During the last night, did you sleep in this household?

A2: yes / no

 

(ask the following questions only if the previous answer is YES)

 

Q3: During the last night, did you sleep under a mosquito net?

A3: yes / no

 

(ask the following questions only if the previous answer is YES)

 

Q4: Can I please see the mosquito net you slept under?

A4: mosquito net was shown / mosquito net was not shown

 

Q5 for enumerator: What type of mosquito net did the woman sleep under?

A5:

1) insecticide-treated net [fill in the locally available types and brands]

2) other type of net

3) not possible to determine the type of net

 

 

Calculate the indicator’s value by dividing the number of pregnant women who slept under an insecticide-treated net by those who did not and multiplying the result by 100. Exclude all respondents who did not respond or who did not show a mosquito net.

Important Comments

1) Ensure that the enumerators are very familiar with the locally distributed / sold types of mosquito nets, so that they can recognize them easily. Consider providing them with pictures of various types of nets.

 

2) Disaggregate the data by the respondent’s location and wealth category.
