description:
This sub-study is part of a series of TRaC studies on Maternal and Child Health (MCH) that provides evidence for decision making on interventions to reduce exposures to health hazards among women and children. Results of this study will reveal most effective ways of reaching populations with malaria prevention messages as well as identification of areas that require additional interventions. The study utilized a two stage cluster design. In the first stage, enumeration areas (EAs) were randomly selected using probability proportionate to size. EAs are geographic areas used for sampling purposes. In the second stage, households within the selected EAs were selected using simple random sampling. In the selected households, a Kish grid was used to select one participant in cases where the number of eligible respondents was more than one. A total of 1509 and 950 individual interviews were completed during the baseline and follow-up respectively. UNIANOVA command in SPSS version 17 was used to test for differences in means or proportions between baseline and follow-up study. The same command was also used to test for differences among channels of communicati ng malaria prevention messages that were used. The following demographic characteristics were controlled for in the analyses; age, sex, religion, Socio-Economic Status (SES), education, marital status and occupation.
