A new report has been launched to mark 10 years of the successful implementation of seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) in Africa.

The report, entitled ‘From concept to scale – Celebrating 10 years of seasonal malaria chemoprevention’, was launched on the side of the SMC Alliance’s Annual Meeting in Conakry, Guinea and highlights the progress that has been made in scaling up the intervention since it was first recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2012.

The report also outlines innovative adaptations that are helping to shape and define the future of SMC implementation. These include studies Malaria Consortium has been conducting in collaboration with the national malaria programmes of Mozambique, Uganda and South Sudan to assess the feasibility, acceptability and effectiveness of the SMC expansion outside of the Sahel region.
