TIMEFRAME: 24 WORKING DAYS OVER A FOUR-MONTH PERIOD (MAY-AUGUST 2022)
1. BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT
To prevent malaria in those most vulnerable to the disease’s effects in areas where transmission is seasonal, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC). Malaria Consortium has been a leading implementer of SMC since the WHO issued its recommendation to scale up the intervention in 2012. In 2021, our SMC programme reached 20 million children in Burkina Faso, Chad, Mozambique, Nigeria, Togo and Uganda. In 2022, we expect to reach a similar number of children in those six countries and we plan to implement a small SMC pilot project in South Sudan.
