Written by City Radio on September 7, 2022
Following the completion of distribution of free Insecticide treated nets to households in Anambra State, the state government with her partners, Malaria Consortium and National Malaria Elimination Programme have begun an end process survey to determine the success of the exercise in the twenty-one local government areas of the state.
Three-point-eight million insecticide treated nets were distributed to households in the state as a means to roll back malaria through the support of Give-Well Open Philanthropic funding.
Eighty-four Campaign Monitoring Team members were trained to monitor and gather data that will help evaluate the success of the exercise which lasted for over ten days between August 7 and 20.
The campaign monitoring teams who are expected to go in groups of fours per local government will randomly select houses of beneficiaries and ask them questions about the nets received, find out if the beneficiaries have started using the nets, and if not, why?”
Speaking during the training of the monitoring team in Awka, the Campaign Manager, Malaria Consortium Insecticide Treated Nets Mass Campaign, Mrs Laitan Adeniyi said that the objective of the End Process Evaluation is to provide a quick information on the quality of the distribution for informed decision making and follow up actions.
Mrs Adeniyi explained that the group had in the past uncovered cultural and religious hindrances in the use of the insecticide-treated nets and as such the survey will provide both behaviourial and statistical dynamics to the use of the nets by the people of the state.
