PSI's objective is to improve the health of poor people through behaviour change communication and by using the private sector to deliver health products at affordable and subsidized prices. SFH Zambia aims to decrease prevalence of malaria by undertaking activities such as promotion of insecticide treated nets (ITNs) through behaviour change communications. TRaC surveys provide actionable evidence for social marketing decisions making as well as helping to measure the impact of various project intervention and activities. The objectives of the study are: (1) to identify key determinants (OAM-opportunity, ability and motivation) associated with ITN use and (ii) to obtain baseline information for monitoring key indicators, behavior change, OAM determinants and exposure to SFH interventions. The study is integral to the social marketing plan and strategic plan of SFH Zambia. The study is based on a representative sample of 1750 women aged 15-49 living in Zambia. A three-stage stratified cluster sampling procedure was used to select 1,750 households from which one woman aged 15-49 was to be interviewed. The size of the sample required to achieve the stated objective was scientifically determined using the 95% confidence level and a margin of error. The questionnaire covered demographic information, ITN use, OAM determinants, and exposure to media interventions. Four point Likert scales were used to provide a richer measure of OAM determinants. The measures for these variables were c onstructed based on prior research and were included in the analysis after conducting a reliability and validity check. Logistic regression analyses were performed to identify significant determinants of ITN use. Simple frequencies were run on descriptive data to complete the monitoring table.
