A public-use version of the 1998-2010 MLSFH data without identifying individual or village information is currently processed for inclusion at the ICPSR at the University of Michigan. In the interim, until ICPSR has released the data, researchers interested in working with the MLSFH data should send a short project description and a signed copy of the MLSFH data use agreement to Hans-Peter Kohler (, and a link with the MLSFH public-use data will be emailed.

Researchers working with the MLSFH data are encouraged to join the Malawi Research Group listserver, a relatively low-volume listserver that is used for discussing/disseminating MLSFH-related information. Contact Hans-Peter Kohler (
