Literal question
Is the net (are any of the nets) any of the following brands:
Read each brand name, show picture card, and circle codes for Yes or No for each brand. If possible, observe the net to verify brand.
Interviewer instructions
During training, you will be shown all the common mosquito nets that are available in the country. The brand name is often located on the net itself. A picture of the different types of nets available in the country may also be provided for reference during interviews. Use this to identify the type of net in the dwelling and circle the corresponding number on the questionnaire.

Read the name of each brand of long-lasting nets in turn: "IS THE NET (ARE ANY OF THE NETS) BRAND A? IS THE NET (ARE ANY OF THE NETS) BRAND B?" Read each brand name aloud and if the response is 'Yes', circle the corresponding code. Then proceed to ask about the pre-treated nets: "IS THE NET (ARE ANY OF THE NETS) BRAND C? IS THE NET (ARE ANY OF THE NETS) BRAND D?" and other nets: "IS THE NET (ARE ANY OF THE NETS) BRAND E? IS THE NET (ARE ANY OF THE NETS) BRAND F?"

Note that if the respondent has indicated the number of nets in TN2, you should still have the respondent confirm the presence or absence of each of the brand of nets in TN3. For example, the respondent may have indicated that there is only one net in the household. If the respondent indicates that there is a net in the household of brand A, you should still continue down the list of nets and code 'No' for all other nets. It is possible that once you mention the brand names of net, the respondent may remember an extra net not included in the figure in TN2.

If the respondent is not sure whether a net is one of these brands, try to observe the net, if possible. If it is not possible to observe the net(s), use the pictures you were given to aid in identification.

When you finish asking about the brands of nets from A to F, ask the respondent if there is any other brand of net. If 'Yes', code TN3o3, and write down the brand of the net. If there is another net for which the respondent does not know the brand, code 'Yes' for TN3o4.
