Angola 2011 Malaria Indicator Survery
The 2011 Malaria Indicator Survey in Angola (2011 AMIS) was conducted by Cosep Consultoria, Consaúde Lda., and the Programa Nacional de Controle da Malária, with technical assistance from ICF Macro. Fieldwork took place from January 2011 through May 2011. The Angola Malara Indicator Survey (AMIS) is part of the Demographic and Health Surveys (MEASURE DHS) program and the Malaria Indicator Surveys (MIS) programs, implemented by ICF International under contract with USAID Washington. The objectives of the 2011 AMIS are (1) to evaluate behavior related to the prevention and treatment of malaria and (2) to estimate the prevalence of malaria among children under age 5. Additional questions were included to facilitate the estimation of fertility and infant mortality.
Fieldwork for the 2011 AMIS took place between January 2011 and May 2011, amidst heavy rains and floods typical of the period of high transmission of malaria. The survey collected data from 8,030 households and 8,589 women age 15-49. The sample was designed to represent populations at the national level, at urban and rural levels, and in four recognized malaria epidemiological regions: Hyperendemic, Mesoendemic Stable, Mesoendemic Unstable, and the Province of Luanda.
