Namibia-malaria RAMP #2

The second Namibia RAMP survey took place in January 2012 in the Caprivi Region. This survey served as the baseline for the next phase of the Namibia Red Cross supported project Communities Fighting Malaria that aims to improve the health and improve malaria control for persons in four of the five constituencies where the Namibia Red Cross works: Kabbe, Katima Mulilo Rural, Kongola and Linyanti. It also served as an endline for the first phrase of this project.

The survey was led by the Namibia Red Cross. A four day training was provided for the interviewers and field supervisors. Interviewers were Namibian Red Cross volunteers who serve as supervisors for the Communities Fighting Malaria project. Cell phones were used to capture data during the household interviews. For access to datasets for the second RAMP survey in Namibia, please email Jason Peat, IFRC, at jason.peat@ifrc.org
