description:
Specifically, this survey investigates baseline levels in mosquito net ownership and use and malaria treatment with ACT drugs behaviors as well as monitoring indicators of opportunity, ability, and motivation in all malarial areas of Zimbabwe. In addition, the study assesses impact of PSI Zimbabwe's social marketing instruments. Findings on malaria treatment will be reported separately. 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 households where more than one eligible respondent was available, a respondent was randomly selected using the Kish grid method. If there were no people at a selected household, two callbacks were done before substitution with the adjacent household. At least three callbacks were done before substituting the selected person in selected household. Substitution was also done when the initially selected respondent refused to be interviewed. A sample size of 1,509 interviews were conducted in the malaria endemic areas. Analysis was performed using SPSS version 16.0 and results presented in PSI Dashboard format. Comparison was made between PSI program areas vers us non-program areas, all in malarial areas, using UNIANOVA controlling for socio-demographic characteristics and geographic location. The segmentation models were based on binary logistic regression in which explanatory variables were dropped if found not to significantly contribute to explanation of the variance. Adjusted means or proportions were presented for explanatory variables which remained in the final logistic regression model, adjusting for significant explanatory variables in the model as well as the design variable (Enumeration Area).
