In Brief: Govt announces anti-malaria day

April 25 will be National Anti-Malaria Day in Cambodia, according to a sub-decree drafted by the Ministry of Health and approved by the Council of Ministers last Friday. Last year, 58,000 people were reported to be infected, according to Dr Duong Socheat, director of the National Centre for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control. So far this year, the centre has provided roughly 500,000 mosquito nets to about 1.2 million people, short of the 1.2 million nets needed for an estimated 2.4 million people nationwide considered to be at high risk.
