Border areas between Cambodia and Thailand have been free of the threat of war for years but remain home to another deadly foe – malaria, a disease that badly needs effective measures and cooperation from countries in the region to control, said the World Health Organisation (WHO).

However, the situation on the other side of Thailand, on the border with Burma, may be worse.

“We have to be more aggressive against the deadly Plasmodium falciparum parasite, develop new interventions, improve and encourage human resources’ engagement, come up with new therapies, and secure the best drugs,” said Dr Charles Delacollette, coordinator of the WHO’s mekong Malaria Programme.
