Net retailers to get mosquito repellant

Mosquito net wholesalers throughout the country will be given insect repellant to distribute to retailers as part of a new malaria-prevention strategy launched by a health organisation. The scheme from the NGO Population Services International (PSI) is aimed at protecting the 2 million people who face the risk of being infected by malaria in Cambodia, PSI spokesperson Chris Jones said. Though the use of mosquito nets increased by around 43 percent from 2004 to 2008, he said the current nets are not effective enough to protect people against malaria. The plan calls for retailers to sell the treated nets at the same price as untreated ones.
