We thank the ICEMR program and study team, the community of Dangassa, and Mali’s NMCP. We also thank Jules Mihigo and Celia Jane Woodfill from the President’s Malaria Initiative for their support of SMC implementation in Dangassa. We also thank our late mentor and dear friend Donald J. Krogstad, whose efforts laid the groundwork for this study. It is our sincere hope that this work serves as a building block toward Dr. Krogstad’s lifelong mission for reducing malaria and improving its health outcomes in Africa. Many thanks to Modibo Sangare, Hannah Marker, and John C. Beier for their helpful contributions.
