Nigeria Malaria Indicator Survey 2010. Final report.
Commissioned by the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP), the 2010 Nigeria Malaria Indicator Survey (NMIS) was implemented by the NPC, NMCP and other Roll Back Malaria partners. Primary objectives of the survey were to provide information on malaria indicators and malaria prevalence at national and zonal levels. The survey, the first of its kind to be conducted in all 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) of Nigeria, covers topics such as background characteristics (age, residence, education, media exposure, and literacy), birth history, childhood mortality, antenatal care and malaria prevention during pregnancy for most recent births, malaria prevention and treatment, and knowledge about malaria (symptoms, causes, prevention, and drugs used in treatment). Information was collected from all women age 15-49 in selected clusters. (Excerpt)
