From: Comparison of Lives Saved Tool model child mortality estimates against measured data from vector control studies in sub-Saharan Africa

Study Intervention Period Baseline <5 mortality rate (5q0) Baseline neonatal mortality rate Proportion post-neonatal mortality due to malaria (%) [reference] Intervention coverage baseline year Intervention coverage year 1 (%) Intervention coverage year 2 (%)

  1. a: UNICEF country-specific mortality rates for the first year of the study [28]
  2. b: Derived by subtracting child mortality 59q1 (in months) from child mortality 5q0
  3. c: Estimated from study reporting that 80% of mosquito nets were treated in the intervention group [9]
  4. d: Derived by adding the child mortality 59q1 (in months) to the neonatal mortality
  5. e: Region-level estimates from DHS surveys [18, 21, 24]
  6. f: Study specific estimate [22]
