Seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) is a highly effective intervention to prevent malaria infections in areas where the malaria burden is high and transmission is seasonal. SMC has been implemented in northern Mozambique since 2020 among children 3–59 months. Sensitisation and mobilisation are conducted before the implementation of SMC by recognised community leaders. A qualitative study was conducted in 2021 in Nampula province, Mozambique, to assess the impact of community leaders on increasing acceptability of SMC.
