This rapid assessment manual and package is designed to help countries obtain the information they need to assess the burden of malaria during pregnancy, to develop a policy or program, to assess program implementation, and to evaluate impact.

The package provides most of the materials needed to conduct a rapid assessment: general guidance about planning and conducting a rapid assessment (including where to locate existing data); sample assessment instruments, both quantitative and qualitative, which can and should be adapted to local circumstances; specific information about how to use each tool; and guidance about the use of the information obtained. Other resources, including relevant guidelines, sample PowerPoint presentations for training sessions are also included.
