During the ACTwatch project period, Madagascar had a small population and a low malaria burden. The country also had a highly regulated market with strong public and community-based provision of antimalarials. As an isolated island nation, the results of policy change were seen more quickly and were less affected by the policy/subsidy interventions implemented in neighboring countries. The AMFm subsidy was piloted in Madagascar from 2010-2013.
ACTwatch conducted five outlet surveys (2008, 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2015), two household surveys (2009 and 2012), and qualitative and quantitative supply chain research (2012) in Madagascar. Results from all surveys and research are available at the Results & publications page.
