On 9th June, Malaria Consortium hosted an SMC symposium in order to summarize the progress in expanding SMC since 2014, showcasing the results of the ACCESS-SMC project and sharing main lessons learnt from the first at scale SMC implementation in 2015. Furthermore, this event provided the opportunity to discuss the SMC trends for 2016 and beyond. It addressed specific research questions that are being raised by ACCESS-SMC, most notably those related to the feasibility of the intervention at scale, the impact of an SMC intervention on public health, concerns about drug safety and impact on resistance, and assumptions on cost drivers and sustainability.
