In Nigeria, Malaria Consortium is the leading implementer of seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC). Various community-level actors contribute to the annual SMC campaign in Nigeria, among them lead mothers (LMs): female members of the community who conduct health promotion activities. Although LMs have been working on the SMC campaign for several years, the impact of their role on SMC delivery has so far not been evaluated. There is also lack of clarity about their interactions with other key actors, such as agents of the Community Health Influencers, Promoters and Services programme, which seeks to harmonise community health worker interventions in Nigeria.
