The COVID-19 Health Services Disruption Survey 2020 is a series of surveys developed to assess the level of disruption to a range of health services resulting from the COVID-19 global pandemic and subsequent government mandates and changes in behavior to mitigate the spread of the disease.
This survey was conducted in 76 countries using the smartphone-based Premise data collection platform. Respondents were individual members of the general population in 20 African countries where malaria is endemic. Data were collected from 14,615 respondents. The survey focused on the level of disruption to malaria prevention activities and malaria testing and treatment.
The survey was developed specifically to assess the change in levels of service delivery prior to, and immediately following, the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Data generated from this survey is not intended to be used as an overall estimate of the level of health service delivery.
