A nation-wide malaria knowledge, attitudes and practices survey in Malawi: objectives and methodology : A nation-wide malaria knowledge, attitudes and practices survey in Malawi.
A malaria knowledge, attitudes and practices survey was conducted in Malawi during April and May, 1992, to provide policy makers and program managers with information needed to design or improve malaria control programs, to establish epidemiologic and behavioral baselines, and to identify indicators for monitoring program effectiveness.
Using cluster-sample survey methodology, 1531 households, in 30 clusters of 51 -52 households each, were identified and members interviewed.
Interviews were conducted by trained survey teams composed of young Malawian women with secondary level education.
Heads of households were asked about malaria prevention methods used and about household economics; caretakers of children were asked about treatment and health seeking behavior in a recent malaria episode in a child; and women who had been pregnant in the past 5 years were asked about their entenatal clinic utilization and malaria during pregnancy.
