These surveys were conducted in Mitundu Health Area (Lilongwe district) in 2014 and in Phalombe district in 2015. Combined with a qualitative exploratory process, they helped to define the intervention strategy for health programmes in Malawi at that time. The questions addressed concerned malaria and diarrhoea prevention practices (mosquito nets, latrines, hand washing, etc.) and healthcare behaviour for sick children and women (family planning, prenatal consultations and deliveries). The Mitundu survey was led by Piroska Bisits Bullen and the Phalombe survey by Anna Hosking, both Inter Aide programme managers. The reports are in English.
