These capacity-building interventions were evaluated through the analysis of 23 facility performance indicators using data from a modified outpatient visit form and Ministry of Health registers. The facility performance data were used for a secondary analysis of malaria care among infants under 6 months of age. The analysis was performed with anonymous data on individual patients rather than the facility-level data posted in the facility-level data file. The data on infants also include potential predictors of malaria care, including patient, clinician, and health facility factors.
