The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) leads the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and partners with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide quality case management and prevention of malaria, strengthen surveillance, monitor control efforts and conduct operational research. USAID’s Control and Prevention of Malaria project in Burma, Cambodia and Thailand provides training for local community workers and health staff to effectively diagnose, treat and follow up on patients. The five-year program focuses on curbing multi-drug resistant malaria and improving access to early diagnosis and treatment for those who are most at risk for the disease, particularly migrant workers and other vulnerable populations.
