 Collaborative activities Malaria control for ethnic minorities
Anti-malaria competition for ethnic minority in Khanh Vinh district, Khanh Hoa province

Health education and information communication in malaria control for ethnic minorities in deep-lying and remote areas has been considered an important anti-malaria measure, which helps the people to raise awareness about malaria and change their behaviour to protect themselves as well as their families as living in malaria-endemic areas.


Over the past years, the malaria control programme in Vietnam in general and Central Vietnam in particular has achieved encouraging results, in which health communication and education plays an important part in lowering malaria morbidity and mortality rate. However, the risk of malaria recurrence is still high, especially in remote, mountainous and unreachable areas. With the purposes of maintaining achieved results and raising the people's knowledge, attitude and practice of anti-malaria in malaria-endemic zones, o­n 26 June 2011 the Institute of Malariology, Parasitology and Entomology Quy Nhon (IMPE Quy Nhon) in collaboration with the Provincial Malaria Control Center of Khanh Hoa (PMCC Khanh Hoa) and the District Medical Center of Khanh Vinh (DMC Khanh Vinh) held the Anti-malaria Competition for Ethnic Minority in Khanh Vinh district, Khanh Hoa province.
