Where did you get the (name of anti-malarial from ML4 or ML7)?
If more than one anti-malarial is mentioned in ML4 or ML7, refer to the first anti-malarial given for the fever (the anti-malarial given on the day recorded in ML9).
The intent of this question is to identify where the antimalarial first given for fever was obtained. If more than one antimalarial is mentioned in ML4 or ML7, refer to the first antimalarial given - that is, the antimalarial given on the day recorded in ML9. Circle the code corresponding to the answer given. If the respondent obtained the antimalarial from a medical sector source, ask whether the place is in the public (run by the government) or private sector. If the place is in the public sector, but is not one of the pre-coded choices, write the description in the space provided for 'Other public' and circle '16'. Similarly, if the place is in the private medical sector, but is not one of the pre-coded categories, write the description in the space provided for 'Other private medical' and circle '26'. If the respondent answers that the antimalarial was obtained from another place not listed, write the description of the place in the space provided for 'Other' and circle '96'. Then notify your supervisor. Your supervisor will learn from other people in the community whether the place is public or private and then circle the code corresponding to the response. Circle '98' if the respondent does not know where the antimalarial was obtained.
