2022 Update: Malaria Social and Behaviour Change Program Guidance in the Context of COVID-19 Pandemic

On April 9, 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO) Global Malaria Program (GMP) released the guidance Tailoring Malaria Interventions in the COVID-19 Response to address malaria within the critical preliminary phase of the context of COVID-19, which cuts across vector control (insecticide-treated nets [ITNs] and indoor residual spraying [IRS]), case management, chemoprevention (intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy [IPTp], seasonal malaria chemoprevention [SMC]), and supportive structures and systems (supply chain, program management, information systems, and communication and community engagement). To complement this guidance, the RBM Partnership to End Malaria Social Behaviour Change Working Group (RBM SBC WG) developed interim guidance for malaria SBC in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic in April 2020.

This guidance was updated in April 2022.
