In Brief: Mosquito nets to be distributed

The

National Centre for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control will

distribute 600,000 mosquito nets and hammocks to 20 provinces over two

weeks as part of a campaign to reduce malaria infection rates to a

record low by 2015. Dr Siv Sovannroth, chief of the centre's net

department, said Monday the program will distribute one net for every

two people. "More than 2 million Cambodians face malaria infection this

year," he said.
