Source of information
The mother or caretaker of the child aged 0-4.
Literal question
What medicine was [NAME] given?
Interviewer instructions
Circle the codes corresponding to all medicines taken by the child to treat the fever, both antimalarials and other types of medicines such as acetaminophen given during this illness. If the respondent cannot remember the names of all the medicines the child took, use the following approach to probe for the correct names of the antimalarial or other types of medicines taken:

(1)	Ask to see the package of leftover medicines; some households keep popular antimalarial and other medicines at home. 

(2)	Use common brand names when asking the respondent about antimalarial medicines. 

If the medicine is an antimalarial but is not listed, circle 'H' and fill in the name in the space provided. If the medicine is another type of medicine, but is not listed, circle 'X' and fill the name in the space provided. If the mother/primary caretaker still doesn't know, circle 'Z'.
