Seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) has been scaled up successfully across the Sahel region of west and central Africa. The intervention has been shown to be safe, feasible and cost-effective. Our webinar on November 30th 2021 explores if SMC can be deployed in other areas of Africa where malaria transmission is seasonal. We will present ongoing implementation research in Mozambique and Uganda, which is assessing the feasibility, acceptability and impact of SMC beyond the Sahel. Representatives of the national malaria programmes of Mozambique and Uganda will present the studies and Malaria Consortium will share our thoughts on the potential scale-up of SMC outside of the Sahel and the research questions that remain to be answered.
