Malaria Consortium in Cambodia
Malaria Consortium established an office in Phnom Penh, Cambodia in early 2009, with field offices in Pailin (since 2009) and Rattanakiri (since 2014) in addition to supporting activities in multiple other provinces. Since its inception, Malaria Consortium Cambodia has assisted at both the provincial and national levels to strengthen the capacity of government officers and to provide technical support for malaria control and elimination. The offices have been working closely with the Cambodian government, partner agencies, research institutions and communities to ensure evidence-based decision making and strategic planning are translated into effective implementation on the ground.
Malaria Consortium in Cambodia has worked to design and conduct operational research in close collaboration with the national malaria control programme and provincial health departments to assist Cambodia to achieve a goal of eliminating malaria by 2025. Malaria Consortium’s leading role as an expert in malaria surveillance, monitoring and evaluation has been recognised by the Ministry of Health of the Kingdom of Cambodia, resulting in the organisation being awarded the Certificate of Merit
for high performance in partnership on the implementation of malaria elimination in early 2015.
In addition, Malaria Consortium Cambodia has also provided support for the control of neglected tropical diseases like dengue
, and for childhood illnesses like pneumonia
. The office has worked to improve surveillance and health systems at the national, regional and community levels. We have also designed training curricula on diagnosis and treatment, as well as delivering training for health workers.
Malaria Consortium’s support and implementation activities in Cambodia focus on the following key areas:
