Hello
In order to calculate the Effective coverage rate of malaria treatment in Madagascar, I need: Access to care data, Compliance (Health service provider compliance to First-line drug to treat malaria cases), Adherence, and cure rate data.
I already found Access to care and Compliance data in the MIS reports that I have downloaded, but, I still not find Adherence and cure rate data files anywhere on the site and it looks like those data are in DHS STATA files; but I don't know where to find them on the site.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Following is a response from DHS Lead Malaria Research Analyst, Cameron Taylor:

Dear user
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, you can't calculate effective coverage of malaria treatment in Madagascar using MIS data alone. You would need information from the health facility via a SARA survey or information from HMIS/DHIS2.

The following reference outlines the indicators you can calculate using MIS data
