Household heads were questioned about household income and household expenditures on the treatment or prevention of malaria in. a nationwide malaria knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) survey conducted in Malawi in 1992.
Very low income households with an average annual income of $ 68 constituted 52% of the sampled households.
The primary income source for these households was farm production (92%), with the majority of goods produced consumed by the household and not available as dis cretionary income.
Expenditure on malaria prevention varied with household income level.
Only 4% of very low income households spent resources on malaria preventive measures compared to 16% of other households.
In contrast, over 40% of all households, independent of income level, reported expenditures on malaria treatment.
