In 2020, the Mozambican National Malaria Control Programme and Malaria Consortium initiated a phased implementation project in Nampula province to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) in the Mozambican context. Between November 2020 and February 2021, we delivered SMC to a target population of around 72,000 children under five in the districts of Malema and Mecubúri. We also conducted an end-of-round coverage survey in these districts, coordinated by Centro de Investigação em Saúde de Manhiça, after the final cycle of the annual SMC round.
