Malaria in pregnancy (MiP) remains a preventable cause of adverse maternal, fetal and newborn health outcomes in Uganda. Health management information system data show that 215,024 facility-based MiP cases were reported in 2018 alone. The USAID MAPD program has supported Uganda’s efforts to combat MiP since 2017. This study investigates the relationship between MiP case numbers and the uptake of preventive interventions among pregnant women attending antenatal care in Uganda.
