  1. aLLIN coverage defined as the percentage of households with at least one net for every two people [37]
  2. bDefined as the percentage reporting being exposed to prevention message
  3. cDefined as the percentage of household members who slept under a mosquito net the previous night divided by the percentage of coverage
  4. dDefined as the percentage of children under five who slept inside an LLIN last night among children in a household with at least one LLIN. This assumes that where an LLIN is available a child would preferentially use it over other household members
