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 was supported by the Malaria Control in Cambodia project, which was supported by USAID and implemented by URC.
