Gold Miners’ Knowledge, Attitudes & Practices with regard to Malaria in Suriname  - 2018

 

SUMMARY:

This report presents the results of a survey on malaria knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP survey) in small-scale gold mining (SSGM) areas in Suriname, South America. Despite Suriname’s successes in fighting malaria, SSGM areas continue to pose risks for malaria transmission. This study helps understand the effects of Malaria Program (MP) health outreach activities in SSGM areas, and contains lessons for future efforts aimed at malaria elimination. A quantitative survey was conducted with inhabitants of four SSGM areas: Brokopodo North, Sella Creek, Benzdorp area, and Pikin Saramacca. A total of 425 survey interviews were done with 68 women (16%) and 357 men (84%), among whom 239 Suriname gold miners (56.2%) and 186 migrants (43.8%). Respondents were on average 37.2 years of age. Most men worked as gold miners (equipment owners and workers), and most women worked as cooks, brothel owners, sex workers, and shop owners/assistants.
