Malaria is responsible for the death of half a million people every year, all around the world. Almost non-existent in Cambodia, the disease has, nonetheless, two particularities: the parasite resists to most treatments, and infected mosquitoes can mostly be found in the forests of the Kingdom. It is vital to urgently eliminate malaria in Cambodia before an incurable form of the disease grows and spreads out throughout the world.
