ITN Access and Use Report - 2018


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
  • The use: access ratio.

All indicators were calculated using available national Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), Malaria Indicators Survey (MIS) and Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (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 indoor residual spraying (IRS).

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