Mozambique is among the six countries accounting for more than half of all malaria cases and deaths worldwide. The World Health Organization recommends seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) as a highly effective community-based intervention to prevent malaria infection during the rainy season in children under five years old. In 2020, Malaria Consortium collaborated with the National Malaria Control Programme to conduct a mixed-methods implementation study in the districts of Malema and Mecubúri in Nampula province. We aimed to assess the feasibility and impact of delivering SMC, and to explore stakeholder views and perceptions of its acceptability.
