Since 2012, the World Health Organization has recommended seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) for children at high risk of contracting severe malaria, in areas of sub-Saharan Africa where malaria transmission is seasonal. Routine household surveys conducted to evaluate the coverage and quality of SMC delivery in Chad found that administration of SMC medicines to children over 59 months appears to be common. This study aimed to explore the feasibility and acceptability of extending SMC to children aged 5–10 years in Chad.
