Advances Against Malaria | Reduction of Hospitalized Cases in Cambodia

Cambodian news sources are reporting a "50 percent drop in total malaria cases reported by public facilities between 2003 and last year, with officials crediting the success to village-based treatment" (Phnom).

"In 2008, 132,620 malaria patients were treated by village-based malaria volunteers, which has remarkably reduced the malaria death rate," according to the doctor of the National Centre for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control.
