Malaria in Pregnancy Monitoring & Evaluation Brief

December 1, 2020 - 11:41 -- Malaria World

Monitoring and Evaluation of Malaria in Pregnancy Services: Practical Tips and Recommended Indicators

The purpose of the brief is to provide malariaendemic countries, particularly country-level government and private-sector stakeholders and policymakers, with guidance on monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of malaria in pregnancy (MiP) services, including recommendations on standard indicators for tracking progress toward meeting national and global targets for preventing and managing MiP. The focus is primarily on routine indicators captured through national health management information systems (HMISs) and used for monitoring within countries at all levels of the health system. The brief is intended to consolidate existing MiP M&E guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), complementing the new WHO guidance for malaria program managers, the 2018 malaria surveillance guidelines, and the WHO MiP M&E guidelines from 2007. The content of the brief further aligns with the Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016–2030 and A Framework for Malaria Elimination.

Key core recommended routine MiP indicators for ongoing tracking at facility level and reporting to the district and higher levels:

  • Percentage of pregnant women attending one or more antenatal care (ANC) visits
  • Percentage of pregnant women attending four or more ANC visits
  • Percentage of women attending eight or more ANC visits
  • Percentage of pregnant women attending ANC in the first trimester
  • Percentage of pregnant women attending ANC who received (one/two/three) doses of intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy (IPTp1, IPTp2, IPTp3, IPTp4)
  • Percentage of pregnant women attending ANC who received an insecticide-treated net during ANC
  • Percentage of pregnant women with suspected malaria tested for malaria who tested positive
  • Percentage of pregnant women with suspected malaria who tested positive for malaria who were treated
