Developing the Evidence for and Assessing the Feasibility of Malaria Elimination Efforts among Mobile Migrant Workers in Plantation Settings in Cambodia and Myanmar

Developing the Evidence for and Assessing the Feasibility of Malaria Elimination Efforts among Mobile Migrant Workers in Plantation Settings in Cambodia and Myanmar

Objectives

1. To determine the prevalence of malaria among mobile and migrant plantation workers, including what species is most prevalent and if the resistance gene is found in parasaetimic individuals

2. To determine risk factors unique to this population, including possible transmission sites

3. Test different active 'screen and treat' models in selected plantations to identify the most cost effective, sustainable, and operationally feasible test and treat approaches for plantation workers.
