As part of national efforts to reduce maternal, neonatal and child mortality, the Ministry of Community Development /Mother and Child Health and UNICEF Zambia, with support from the European Union (EU) is implementing a programme for “Accelerating Progress Towards Maternal, Neonatal and Child Morbidity and Mortality Reduction in Zambia over a period of 4 years. This report presents the findings of the Lot Quality Assurance Sampling Household survey carried out in 11 targeted districts of Copperbelt and Lusaka provinces. This survey was conducted between 26th June and 10th August 2014. The survey was a collaboration between the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ), the European Union (EU), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM), and Ipsos. It aimed to inform the development of district Millennium Development Goal (MDG) Acceleration Plans for 2015 in 11 targeted districts. The household survey included the following seven universes whose knowledge, practices and health care service accessibility were measured: mothers of infants 0-5 months, mothers of children 6-11 months, mothers of infants 12-23 months, mothers of children 0-59 months, mothers of children 0-59 months with fever in the last two weeks, mothers of children 0-59 months with suspected pneumonia in the last two weeks and mothers of children 0-59 months with diarrhoea in the last two weeks. Two levels of analysis were used. The first was a classification at the Supervision Area (SA) level, to identify priority SAs (those performing below the district average coverage). This was done by setting a decision rule according to weighted district average coverage. The second level aggregates the results of all the SAs in each district (catchment area). The results were weighted and a 95% confidence interval calculated. This report concentrates primarily on the district level results.
