SMC M&E Sub-Group of the SMC Alliance



In 2019, following the large-scale implementation of Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention (SMC) in 13 African countries, the Global Malaria Programme of the World Health Organization and the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) convened a drafting committee to develop the 2nd edition of the SMC field Guide. In March 2021, the document was shared for inputs with the M&E workstream of the SMC Alliance and the following sections were reviewed as priority:

  1. the performance framework,
  2. the list of recommended indicators and
  3. methods for estimating SMC coverage and adherence to three doses each cycle.
