ACTwatch is a multi-country research project implemented by PSI ( ACTwatch outlet surveys are conducted in 14 countries (Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Benin, the DRC, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia).

Provide a picture of the total market for malaria case management including: all providers carrying antimalarials and RDTs and providing case management services; the relative antimalarial market share for each provider type; the antimalarial supply chain; and price markups within the supply chain for antimalarials and RDTs.

2. Monitor the readiness of market components for appropriate malaria case management, including: availability of antimalarials and malaria blood testing; consumer price of antimalarial treatment and malaria blood testing; and provider qualifications, training and knowledge.

3. Monitor the performance of market components for appropriate malaria case management, including: the relative market share for quality-assured ACT relative to other antimalarial medicines.

The survey will be conducted among a representative sample of outlets with the potential to provide antimalarial medicines and/or malaria blood testing, in 6 high malaria burden provinces including Quang Nam, Kon-Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong and Binh Phuoc.
