The ACTwatch Outlet Survey involves quantitative research at the outlet level in ACTwatch countries (Cambodia, Uganda, Zambia, Nigeria, Benin, Madagascar and the Democratic Republic of Congo [DRC]). Other elements of ACTwatch research include Household Surveys, led by Population Services International (PSI), and Supply Chain Research, led by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). This report presents the results of a cross-sectional survey of outlets conducted in Uganda between November 8th 2011 and December 12th 2011 and also serves as the endline for the Affordable Medicines Facility – malaria (AMFm) Phase I Independent Evaluation.
The objective of the outlet survey is to monitor levels and trends in the availability, price and volumes of antimalarials, and providers’ perceptions and knowledge of antimalarial medicines at different outlets. Price and availability data on diagnostic testing services are also collected. This report presents indicators on availability, price, volumes, affordability in outlets and provider knowledge of antimalarials.
