Malaria is major public health problem in Uganda, affecting almost 100 percent of the population. The National Malaria Control Division and Malaria Consortium conducted a seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) implementation study in Karamoja, where parasite resistance is assumed to be high. Results indicated children in intervention districts had a 92.2 percent lower risk of developing confirmed malaria in the five-month follow-up versus those in the control district.
This presentation was given at the 71st annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
