August 11, 2017 - 16:11 -- Ingeborg van Schayk

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. Approximately 12 million children were protected through SMC programmes in 2016, with over 6.4 million children covered through the ACCESS-SMC project, funded by UNITAID and led by Malaria Consortium in partnership with Catholic Relief Services.
