What is its purpose?

Malaria infection during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, premature delivery, low birth weight, congenital infection, and/or perinatal death. Therefore, this indicator 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

 

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

 

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) another type of net

3) not possible to determine the type of net

 

 

To calculate the indicator’s value, divide the number of pregnant women who slept under an insecticide-treated net by those who did not. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage. Exclude all respondents who did not respond or who did not show a mosquito net.

Disaggregate by

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

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.
