Seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) is the intermittent administration of antimalarials to children under five in areas with highly seasonal transmission. It has implemented in Karamoja, Uganda, since 2021. Evaluation data from the 2021 SMC round showed that gendered roles could have some impact on acceptability and implementation outcomes of SMC. By integrating a gender-sensitive lens in the process evaluation of the 2022 SMC round, this study aimed to formatively explore a range of gendered dynamics at play in SMC.
