Global Fund Grant Malaria Program
In Cambodia, FHI 360 implemented the Global Fund Grant Malaria Program in Pailin province, which is located in the west of the country along the Cambodian-Thai border. Pailin is one of the key centers of malaria drug resistance; therefore, reducing its spread in this part of Cambodia is particularly important for malaria control and eradication efforts. The community intervention programs include raising awareness, using geographic information systems for mapping and providing insecticide treated bed nets and malaria screening. In addition, the program provides early diagnosis and treatment to the villagers and internal migrants who have moved to Pailin from other provinces. It helps to cut the transmission chain to others and will contribute to reducing mortality and morbidity in the country.
