Country Sample size* ≥1 ANC visit ≥2 ANC visits ≥1 dose of SP ≥2 doses of SP Reference
Kenya 3,973 and 2,264 92.7% 88.4% 35.5% 15.1% DHS 2008-09 [40]
Namibia 3,898 and 2,054 96.2% 94.5% 27.8% 10.6% DHS 2006-07 [41]

  1. ANC = antenatal care; SP = sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine; DHS = demographic and health survey.
  2. *The first listed sample size corresponds to the denominator used to calculate ANC attendance and the second to the denominator use to estimate coverage of IPTp with SP. The sample sizes differ because the recall period for ANC attendance and IPTp coverage is for the most recent live birth over the last five years versus the last two years, respectively.
