Previous studies have showed that life threatening malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, is day by day becoming resistant to drugs. It has further been found that the deadly disease is taking its toll in Thai-Myanmar border.
The political relationship of Myanmar is improving. It has been informed that collaborative efforts would be introduced for dealing with the deadly disease. Recently, a write-up published in the journal Lancet highlighted the decades of research over the deadly strain of malaria.
The medical experts are concerned about the growing evidences of drug resistant malaria. Dr. Steven Bjorge from World Health Organisation in Cambodia is of the view that the through collaborative efforts victory over the deadly strain of malaria could be established.
He was reported as saying, “We have shown [in Cambodia] that we can contain, reduce and eliminate malaria through effective health interventions that are diligently applied”. The authorities at the Thai-Myanmar border would be working together by distributing insecticide-treated bed nets and by promoting the malaria diagnosis tests in the villages.
Malaria-containment project worth of US$24 million has already begun. The Health Ministry has informed that in 2010 there were 40% reduced incidences of malaria Cambodia. The health ministry has been distributing insecticide-treated bed nets in 4,000 villages with the pursuit of establishing a control over the disease.
Children, pregnant women and elders are at higher risk of being affected with malaria. Malaria is hard to treat disease which is spread by mosquito bite. The people are advised to cover their body so that mosquito bite could be prevented. Moreover, the use of insecticide treated bed nets is also advisable. It is hoped that the authorities would be able to establish control over the deadly strain of malaria.
