Quality IPTp Checklist for Facility Officers in Charge

Due to its link to various complications during and after pregnancy, the prevention of malaria among pregnant women is regarded as an important strategy for reducing mortality and adverse maternal and neonatal health outcomes, such as maternal anemia, low birth weight, and perinatal deaths. 
The following tool was designed to improve the provision and use of Intermittent Preventive Treatment for Pregant Women (IPTp) at facility level, through a quality improvement (QI) approach that complements the supervisory responsibility of Officers in Charge (OICs), and enables facility staff to track trends, identify bottlenecks, and revise strategies on an ongoing basis, ultimately contributing toward improved coverage of IPTp.
