July 2022: Kano states kicks off SMC campaigns

Nigeria’s Kano state kicked off a series of seasonal malaria chemoprevention campaigns on July 5. Set to run in four cycles of four days each from July to October, the exercise targets over 12 million children ages 3 months to 59 months across the state’s 44 Local Government Areas. Kano also plans to distribute over 8 million long-lasting insecticide-treated nets between July and September. Meanwhile, Nigeria’s Kaduna state distributed over 5.4 million treated nets through a door-to-door campaign July 7-18. Kano and Kaduna are among eight Nigerian states (including Anambra, Delta, Katsina, Niger, Taraba and Yobe) aiming to hand out a combined 34.8 million nets under a Global Fund-backed initiative.
