Examining equity in access to long-lasting insecticide nets and artemisinin-based combination therapy in Anambra state, Nigeria

By Chinyere O Mbachu

Background: In order to achieve universal health coverage, the government of Anambra State, southeast Nigeria
has distributed free Long-lasting Insecticide treated Nets (LLINs) to the general population and delivered free
Artemisinin-based Combination Therapy (ACT) to pregnant women and children less than 5 years. However, the
levels of coverage with LLINS and ACTs is not clear, especially coverage of different socio-economic status (SES)
population groups. This study was carried out to determine the level of coverage and access to LLINs and ACTs
amongst different SES groups.
Methods: A questionnaire was used to collect data from randomly selected households in 19 local government
areas of the State. Selected households had a pregnant woman and/or a child less than 5 years. The lot quality
assurance sampling (LQAS) methodology was used in sampling. The questionnaire explored the availability and
utilization of LLINs and ACTs from 2394 households. An asset-based SES index was used to examine the level of
access of LLINS and ACTs to different SES quintiles.
Results: It was found that 80.5 % of the households had an LLIN and 64.4 % of the households stated that they
actually used the nets the previous night. The findings showed that 42.3 % of pregnant women who had fever within
the past month received ACTs, while 37.5 % of children
