MEASURE Evaluation, January 2014
This study focused on providers of antenatal health care in Malawi and their understanding and actions in the routine administration of intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy (IPTp) for malaria. Study results show that the lack of clear, detailed guidelines for providing antimalarial drugs is the weakest aspect of Malawi antenatal services. Researchers also found a need for a system of supervision of antenatal services to focus attention on IPTp services.
