Current situation of subnational malaria elimination at district-level in Central Vietnam (04/17/2023)

Viet Nam is o­ne of the countries at high-risk of malaria all over the world with large malaria-endemic areas. However, due to the suitable strategies for each malaria programme phase, and the Government's investment as well as the domestic and international support, the malaria-endemic areas has been significantly narrowed.

Assessment of malaria and parasitic diseases control in Central Vietnam in 2022 (02/20/2023)

Central Vietnam is the hardest hit region by malaria in the country for many decades with high rates of malaria morbidity and mortality. This region is characterized by its geographical location with long borderlines adjacent to Laos and Cambodia, along with the presence of nature reservations and national forests. This region is also inhabited by many ethnic minorities whose livelihoods are closely linked to  logging and forest products exploitation.

World Malaria Day 2023: Time to Deliver Zero Malaria: Invest, Innovate, Implement (04/10/2023)

World Malaria Day, marked each year o­n 25 April, brings together the global malaria community to highlight global efforts to end malaria, the need for sustained political commitment and continued investment for malaria control and elimination. Today, the combination of low coverage of existing tools, emerging biological threats and funding shortfalls are brewing a perfect storm for malaria. Now is the time to take decisive action to deliver o­n our goal of zero malaria and achieve 2030 targets. This World Malaria Day, it's time to deliver zero malaria.

Towards a malaria-free Viet Nam (07/06/2023)

As Viet Nam approaches elimination, malaria has become rare or non-existent in settled, ethnic majority villages but persists in geographically remote areas inhabited by ethnic minorities. Malaria control is facing a lot of difficulties because of uncontrollable mobilized populations such as forest goers and border crossers. Behavior change of minority groups - to alert populations to need to seek prompt diagnosis and treatment from available services, and to comply with full course of treatment - is challenging and requires persistent efforts using multiple channels with involvement of Commune Health Workers and Community Malaria Action Team members. Here are two typical examples of such engagement in two malaria hotpots of Viet Nam - Lai Chau and Gia Lai.

Assessment of drug efficacy of dihydroartemisinine - piperaquine and chloroquine in treatment for uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax malaria respectively in Central highland region (06/05/2018)

The parasite resistance to antimalarial drugs in Central highland of Vietnam is an early warning to us that we are losing the most optimal weapons fighting the malaria. The dihydroartemisin plus piperaquine combination and chloroquin, which was listed into the essential antimalarial drugs since 2007 in Vietnam, has been used for 10 years until resistance appears in some Southern, Central of Western highland provinces. The study was conducted to evaluate the first-line drugs' efficacy in the treatment of uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax patients in multicenters;
