Community case management of malaria (CCMm) and seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) are anti-malarial interventions that can lead to substantial reduction in malaria burden acting in synergy. However, little is known about the social acceptability of these interventions. A study was undertaken to assess whether combining the interventions would be an acceptable approach to malaria control for community health workers (CHWs). The authors conclude that combining CCMm and SMC is a well-accepted, community-based approach that can contribute to control malaria in areas where malaria transmission is seasonal.
