Fig2: IPTp coverage across districts in Ghana in 2003 and 2008

Mentions: Harry Tagbor (Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana) presented encouraging progress in IPTp uptake in Ghana between 2003 and 2008. National coverage was below 5 % in 2003 and rose to 44 % in 2008, although with marked variation between regions (see Fig. 2). A study from the rural district of Ashanti in 2009 found over 80 % of pregnant women to have received at least two doses of IPTp while 71 % of women made more than four ANC visits during their pregnancies. The number of ANC visits was significantly associated with greater IPTp dosing. This study further highlighted the importance of making every ANC visit count as an opportunity to deliver IPTp, and also the need to address bottlenecks at the local district and health facility levels.Fig. 2
