Emergency response to artemisinin resistance in the Greater Mekong subregion
In April 2013, WHO launched an emergency response to artemisinin resistance in the Greater Mekong subregion. A new framework for action, covering 2013-2015, was developed, proposing an immediate and coordinated scale-up of malaria interventions and containment efforts in Cambodia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam. A dedicated regional hub was set up in the WHO Country Office in Cambodia, with a network of technical officers placed in WHO Country Offices in affected countries. This website section brings together all information related to the work of the Regional hub.
