I am currently using the variable that measures any children who received anti-malarial for fever treatment in Ghana. I am looking at the 1988, 1993, 1998, 2003, and 2008 DHS datasets. For 1988 I use the variable h24, h33a for 1993, s449bc for 1998. For 2003 and 2008, I am wondering what variable is consistent/similar to those variables that identifies children who has taken anti-malarial for fever. This is a very important key explanatory variable I will be using to run my difference-in-differences model. Thank you in advance for you help!

I noticed that instead of having one variable that measure if children have received anti-malarial, for years 2003 and 2008, the variable is broken up into h37a-h37f or ml13a-ml13h.
