On the World Malaria Day (April 25, 2009), along with the launching ceremony o­n malaria control and health education and communication organized at the mountainous-border area of A Luoi district, the health sector in Thua Thien-Hue (TT-H) province deployed health care activities for mobilised people living at K'Lo village, K'Lum district, Xekong province in Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR).


Under the guidance of Thua Thien-Hue Provincial Party Committee, Provincial People's Committee and Provincial Health Service, a working group of 25 staff led by Duong Quang Minh, M.Sc, MD., Vice-Head of TT-H provincial health service, carried out the health care services for mobilised people in their new resettlement village of K'Lo village, K'Lum district, Xekong province.

 Route to K'Lo village (K'Lum district)

Located in moutainous area along the Laotian-Vietnamese border, K'Lo village of K'Lum district, Xekong province in Lao PDR has 40 households with 202 mobilised people resettling since 2008. A part of this population has the same family line with those living in the adjacent commune of A Dot, A Luoi district, TT-H province. For this reason, they often cross the border for relative visits. In addition, because K'lo villagers live far away from health facilities and lack of sanitary conditions, they are often at risk of getting communicable diseases such as malaria, diarrhoea, skin diseases and other common diseases.

In 2008, the World Health Organization (WHO) took April 25th annually as The World Malaria Day to remind people about the danger of malaria. In response to the World Malaria Day this year, the TT-H health care mission by medical workers and officials in Xekong province, Lao PDR was thought to be extremely significant.

The group carried out the medical diagnosis, treatment and blood examination for about 180 people or 81% of the population with malaria, eye, skin and other common diseases. Furthermore, the deworming campaign with Mebendazole 500mg tablets at single dose was also conducted for all villagers at 3 years and above. For malaria vector control, 100 double nets were treated with Fendona 10SC and allocated to 40 local households for protective measures. In other activities, the Veterans Association, The Trade Union of the provincial Health Service also supported 40 packed gifts for the community.

On the Vietnam's side, the leader of Thua Thien Hue Provincial Health Service entrusted the District Health Centre, the District Preventive Medicine Station, and the Health Station of A Dot commune to closely cooperate with A Dot Military Post to continue the o­n-going health care activities for the sake of the community's health, and to contribute to improve the socio-economic conditions for the ethnic minorities living along the borderline.
