In Kenya, malaria in pregnancy continues to contribute to high maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality. By translating emerging evidence on community-based distribution of antimalarial medicine into policy action, policymakers in Kenya have the opportunity to significantly decrease malaria-related mortality and morbidity during pregnancy, safeguarding the health and lives of countless women and newborns. This brief describes recommendations and policies at the global level and in Kenya and identifies ways in which to expand access to preventive treatment for mothers.
