Description

Description of data capture This study explored the roles of antimicrobials in both primary health care provision and within the community and utilised an ethnographic methodology that was informed by critical medical anthropology. Methods included direct observations (in health care facilities and two residential areas) (not included in repository), 85 in-depth interviews (with residents, health care workers and stakeholders), as well as 100 structured medicine interviews conducted across the district to understand medicine use practices. The study was conducted in Chikwawa, a rural district in Southern Malawi. Formal wage employment is low, and subsistence farming is the predominant livelihood strategy and food insecurity an ongoing challenge for many residents. For the community-based study, we undertook research in two residential areas (Njeleza and Mfera), using a purposive sampling approach we recruited subsistence farmers (men and women). For the interviews conducted within health facilities we sampled all those involved in delivering frontline care at the outpatient department. For stakeholders, we included information rich policy makers at the district and national level.
