Improving Care for Children Under Five and Pregnant Women Presenting with Fever in Malawi: Reference Sheet for Improvement Indicators

Since March 2018, the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project has collaborated with the USAID Organized Network of Services for Everyone (ONSE) Project and ONSE’s supported health facilities to help them apply quality improvement (QI) methods to improve care for children under five years of age and pregnant women presenting with fever in ten health centers of Machinga District, Malawi. ASSIST’s efforts included: training on QI for ONSE’s ten malaria coordinators and health care providers from participating facilities, coaching of facility improvement teams, measurement of progress and facilitation of shared learning.   This document presents a list and descriptions of indicators that can be used by QI teams to improve the quality of malaria services for febrile children under five and pregnant women attending antenatal care (ANC) clinics, controlling for misuse of anti-malaria drugs.
