In 2019, we conducted a pilot implementation study in Sokoto state, Nigeria, to to assess the feasibility and acceptability of integrating vitamin A supplementation with the seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) programme. This research brief details the study's innovative findings and provides pragmatic evidence that could guide SMC implementation and scale-up. It also gives recommendations for donors, implementers, national and state malaria programmes, as well as researchers.
