Malaria Consortium supports one last season under the ACCESS-SMC project in Nigeria

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. SMC is an antimalarial drug that prevents children under the age of five years old from getting malaria during the four month rainy season. One treatment per month reduces malaria cases by as much as 75 percent.
