The Malawi Service Provision Assessment (SPA) 2013-2014 is part of phase 6 of the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) series. The Malawi 2013-2014 SPA provides national and sub-national level data on the quality and availability of services from the 977 functioning health facilities in Malawi. Targeted areas of assessment were facility infrastructure and resources and services for child health, family planning, maternal health, STI, HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis. Data was obtained through interviews with health care providers and clients, and observations of provider and client interactions.
