Malaria is a very common problem in Myanmar. The contaminated mosquitoes trouble especially the remote areas. Baring in mind that the treatment of uncomplicated malaria costs only 2 USD for an adult and 1 USD for a child, it is unacceptable that many people decease of the infection. If uncomplicated malaria is not treated well, complicated malaria, which is much harder to cure, can follow. MAM supports a number of governmental clinics,private clinics and village health workers in remote areas by distributing laboratory tests and anti-malaria medicines. Besides curing the disease, treatment is also very effective for the prevention of the further spread of Malaria. In addition to treatment, MAM also provides specific areas with impregnated bed nets for prevention of mosquito bites.
