Various attempts have been made to control malaria for mobilised population, especially those with living habits pushing themselves at risk of getting malaria such as sleeping in the forests, crossing borders. In that context, the cooperation of the civil-army health sectors along the border area of Vietnam-Lao PDR provided some good experiences in the management of malaria.
So far, iIllegal movements of population from the North to West Highlands have imposed considerable difficulties on not only the governmnent's management but also on health care sectors, especially when there is unavailable and feasible malaria control measures for this group.
In recent years, various measures of malaria control have been applied to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality at the grass-roots levels. However, these measures failed to reach the mobilised population because of numerous reasons.
