Compliance to malaria chemoprophylaxis among pregnant women in Malaŵi has historically been low. Three separate interventions, based upon an ethnographic study of malaria beliefs among pregnant women in Malaŵi, were introduced to increase compliance to the malaria chemoprophylaxis program provided by the Ministry of Health. Each intervention consisted of a health education message and an antimalarial drug. A cost-effectiveness analysis of the interventions was conducted to compare the interventions as alternative strategies to increase compliance among pregnant women.
