ITN Access and Use - Mapping Net Culture in Sub-Saharan Africa

Vector Works

This report presents four indicators related to use of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs); individual access to ITN within the household, individual use of ITN the previous night, household ownership of at least one ITN, and the use:access ratio. All indicators were calculated using available national DHS, MIS and MICS data. To explain the variations in access and use, data for each country was stratified by region, urban/rural status, wealth quintile, and whether households received IRS.

Brief observations and programmatic recommendations are made for each country. Topline findings for the PMI Focus countries are presented. A Stata do-file is included as an annex.
