Intermittent preventive treatment in children combined with malaria home management in an area with persisting high malaria prevalence in Senegal


To determine whether seasonal IPTc with sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine plus amodiaquine provide added benefit in populations with access to prompt effective treatment through home–based management; whether IPTc has previously been shown effective when give for three months in areas with a short transmission season and whether seasonal IPTc is safe and acceptable when given for a longer period in areas with a longer transmission season. To also show the cost-effectiveness of adding seasonal IPTc to home management of malaria (HMM)
