Intermittent preventive treatment and bed nets uptake among pregnant women in Kenya

A retrospective descriptive study

Abstract

This study found that there had been a significant decline in the number of pregnant women in Kenya receiving recommended malaria prophylaxis (2012 - 2015). However, the coverage of LLIN consistently improved over the same period.

This research was supported by the UK Department for International Development’s Operational Research Capacity Building Programme led by the International Union Against TB and Lung Disease (The Union)
