For the 25 million children who live across the Sahel, where there is a seasonal surge in malaria incidence, the World Health Organization recommends seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) as an effective tool in the fight against malaria.
For less than $5 one child is protected with SMC each year. To support our continued efforts as a GiveWell Top Charity protecting all 25 million children in the Sahel from malaria visit http://www.givewell.org/charities/malaria-consortium.
Many children will still miss out on receiving SMC in due to lack of funding and production capacity for quality assured medicines used in SMC (SP+AQ). With children in sub-Saharan Africa 14 times more likely to die before the age of five than those living elsewhere in the world, it is time to do more. Malaria can be prevented- in the Sahel, SMC can play a crucial role.Community delivery | Costing and economic impact evaluation | Advocacy | Child and maternal health | Evidence generation | Malaria | Chemoprevention | SMC | SDGs
