Literal question
During this pregnancy, did you take any medicine in order to prevent you from getting malaria?
Interviewer instructions
If the respondent took medicines during pregnancy when she did not already have malaria, continue to the next question.
If the respondent did not take any medicine to prevent her from getting malaria, record '2'. If she does not know whether she received treatment to prevent malaria during her last pregnancy, circle '8' for 'DK'. In both cases, skip to MN7. 

If the respondent says that she had malaria or a fever during the pregnancy and was given medicines to treat the malaria or fever, this would not be considered preventive treatment. In such a case, record '2' for 'No' and skip to MN7.
