Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children; Ministry of Health; National Bureau of Statistics (NBS); Office of Chief Government Statistician (OCGS) , (2018)


The primary objectives of the 2017 TMIS are to measure the level of ownership and use of mosquito nets; assess coverage of intermittent preventive treatment for pregnant women; identify treatment practices, including the use of specific antimalarial medications to treat malaria among children age 6-59 months; measure the prevalence of malaria and anemia among children age 6-59 months; and assess knowledge, attitudes, and practices among adults with malaria.
This table provides estimates of key indicators for the country as a whole and for each of the 31 geographic regions in Tanzania. A comprehensive analysis of the 2017 TMIS data will be presented in a final report.

Improving Estimates of Insecticide-Treated Mosquito Net Coverage from Household Surveys: Using Geographic Coordinates to Account for Endemicity and Seasonality

Burgert, Clara R., Sarah E.K. Bradley, Erin Eckert, and Fred Arnold., (2012)


DHS ANALYTICAL STUDIES 32 - This report examines the possible bias in national estimates of standard Roll Back Malaria (RBM) indicators of insecticide-treated mosquito net (ITN) ownership and use. The analysis uses GPS data for 18 sub-Saharan African countries to correlate these measures with levels of malaria endemicity and seasonality and to recalculate coverage estimates based on the population at risk. The report proposes an approach to identifying populations at risk of malaria that countries could use to produce subnational estimates that account for variations in malaria endemicity or seasonality.
