  1. For each country (indicated by ISO3 codes), distribution of malaria intervention coverage indicators were assessed over population ranked by asset-wealth; the degree of inequality in distribution of interventions was summarized in concentration index (CIX). Interventions were classified as “Pro-poor” if the estimated CIX was negative, “Inequitable” if was CIX is positive, and as “No difference across the asset-wealth index distribution” if CIX was equal to zero or lacked statistical significance
  2. aData drawn from a subset of countries with Demographic and Health Survey/Malaria Indicator Survey conducted after 2010 (ISO3 codes and years of data collection are detailed in Additional file 1: Table SA1)
