In 2001, a program evaluation in Koupéla District, Burkina Faso demonstrated that despite widespread use of chloroquine chemoprophylaxis, the burden of malaria during pregnancy remained high. In 2003, the Burkina Faso Ministry of Health piloted a program of IPTp/SP (three doses) and accelerated distribution of insecticide-treated nets to pregnant women in Koupéla District. In 2004, a follow-up program evaluation was conducted.
