Increasing Access to Early Malaria Diagnosis and Prompted Treatment in Remote Cambodian Villages

This journal article describes a two-year, multi-pronged approach to strengthening the village malaria workers network in Cambodia. The program's success has been a result of integrating village malaria workers with public health facilities; improving patient access to prompt diagnosis and treatment; and resolving systemic barriers such as logistics for rapid diagnostic tests. The program was supported by the Malaria Control in Cambodia project, which was supported by USAID and implemented by URC.
