Fever is the most common symptom of malaria among under-fives in Nigeria. Fever prevalence is high in northern Nigeria (up to 35 percent). Guided by a standard protocol, community distributors (CDs) provide seasonal malaria chemoprevention to children 3–59 months in the Sahel to prevent malaria. We assessed the relationship between fever reports in children and CDs’ protocol adherence, and whether any such association had been modified by households’ concurrent use of insecticide-treated nets.
