This research brief outlines the evaluation of intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy (IPTp) and its uptake in areas of medium or high malaria transmission. IPTp is typically provided as part of the focused antenatal care model (ANC), which stipulates that pregnant women should have at least four ANC assessments at specified intervals. Various issues are hindering the effective provision of ANC and IPTp; our study identifies these obstacles and recommends solutions.
