Liberia Malaria Behavior Survey

The National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) continues to strategize effective malaria control interventions across Liberia. NMCP’s integrated malaria interventions and strategies have been supported by multiple implementing partners, and donors, including the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI). Malaria control also depends in part on human behavior. Understanding populations’ malaria-related knowledge, attitudes, and practices is key to optimizing social and behavior change (SBC) programs. The goal of the Malaria Behavior Survey (MBS) is to provide a better understanding of the socio-demographic and ideational characteristics associated with malaria-related behavioral outcomes in Liberia and to inform SBC strategies and activities designed to improve those outcomes. The MBS was conducted in three of the six health regions of Liberia from December 2021 to March 2022. The results of this report will be used in designing and planning malaria SBC interventions as well as making future policy decisions.
