Kisangani is an area with intense malaria transmission and sulfadoxine‐pyrimethamine resistance. Alternative anti‐malaria prophylaxis medication and protocols are needed, particularly with pregnant individuals. In this study, we compare the tolerance and effectiveness of mefloquine regimen as a split dose with meal versus sulfadoxine‐pyrimethamine for the intermittent preventive treatment in pregnant individuals in Kisangani.
