The Rwanda Malaria Indicator Survey (MIS) 2017 is part of phase 7 of the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) series. Malaria Indicator Surveys are designed to provide information on malaria prevalence, treatment, and prevention practices.

Malaria testing was conducted from finger- or heal-prick blood samples for survey respondents 6 months and over.
