In September 2012, the WHO Malaria Policy Advisory Committee (MPAC) reviewed the most recent evidence on efficacy and effectiveness of IPTp-SP and issued new policy recommendations, promoting the increased uptake of IPTp-SP in all areas of Africa with moderate-to-high transmission of Plasmodium falciparum malaria. WHO’s recent policy update confirms the critical importance of scaling-up IPTp-SP as part of routine antenatal care services and outlines recommendations for administration.
