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.
