Increasing the uptake of IPTp-SP through Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention channel delivery (INTEGRATION study)

Objectives

The overall objective of this project is to evaluate whether the addition of IPTp-SP to SMC will increase coverage of IPTp and antenatal clinic attendance (ANC) among pregnant women in Mali and Burkina Faso.

The specific objectives are:

  1. To compare the delivery of IPTp-SP through a combined strategy (ANC+SMC) with standard care (ANC) 
  2. To assess the acceptability and feasibility of ANC + SMC combined delivery of IPTp-SP compared to standard care (ANC) among health providers. 
  3. To assess the acceptability of ANC + SMC combined delivery of IPTp-SP compared to standard care (ANC) among pregnant women. 
  4. To estimate the absolute and incremental costs [and health benefits] of the combined delivery of IPTp-SP and SMC.
  5. To assess any consequences of combined SMC + ANC delivery of IPTp-SP on SMC and ANC uptake.
  6. To estimate the number of malaria cases in both children and pregnant women
