Project Title Prevention and Control of malaria in hard to reach areas in 9 provinces THA 708-G09-M Partnership Towards Malaria Reduction in Migrant and Conflict-Affected Population in Thailand Partnership for Containment of Artemisinin Resistance and Moving Towards The Elimination of Plasmodium in Thailand Program Goal Access for all to reduce prevalence, morbidity and mortality of TB  in line with MDG Goal

Thailand Regional Artemisinin Containment Initiative



To reduce the malaria burden aiming at outreach to populations in high malarious areas in 9 provinces by working through home and community based activities under the support of local health sectors and local administrative organization.



To reduce malaria burden in population at risk including migrants in endemic areas

To move towards elimination of Plasmodium falciparum malaria parasites in Thailand, with the aim of reaching the targets of the Global Malaria Action Plan (GMAP) and Global Millennium Development Goals by 2015


To make as large as possible contribution to the elimination of falciparum malaria from the GMS, and to prevent the emergence or spread of Artemisinin

1.     To enable the targeted population to be aware of good health practices and be involved in home and community based activities for malaria control.

2.     To increase the access to early detection and prompt effective antimalarial treatment at the local health facilities as well as in the country.

3.     To introduce insecticide treated net (ITNs) as a tool for community protection and reducing malaria transmission.

4.     To ensure early detection of malaria outbreak in the community by establishing a malaria preparedness and control system.



1.     To improve access to early diagnosis and treatment of malaria among vulnerable populations

2.     To improve access to effective malaria prevention measures among vulnerable populations.

3.     To increase effective utilization ofimpregnated bed-netsand prompt treatmentseeking behaviors amongst fever cases

4.     To improve the overall functionality of malaria controlamong vulnerable populations


1.     To contribute towards the elimination of artemisinin resistant parasites by detecting malaria cases (both asymptomatic and symptomatic) in target areas and ensuring effective treatment and gametocyte clearance using combination therapies.

2.     To prevent transmission of malaria parasites through vector control and improve access to personal protection measures among target populations.

3.     To support containment/elimination of P. falciparum parasites through comprehensive BCC, community mobilization and advocacy.

4.     To provide an effective management system (including surveillance, monitoring and evaluation) to enable rapid and high quality implementation of the strategy

Tier 1:

1.To interrupt transmission of P. falciparum by universal coverage and usage of insecticide treated bed nets (either long-lasting nets or treated conventional nets) in all targeted areas.

2.To provide universal access to quality diagnosis and treatment for static populations at health facilities (public and private) and through community malaria workers.

3.To provide access to prevention, diagnosis and treatment for mobile and migrant populations.

4.To halt marketing and sale of oral artemisininmonotherapies.

5.To establish and operationalize a rigorous surveillance system linked to a focal response mechanism.

Tier 2:

1.  To ensure high levels of usage and coverage of insecticide treated bed nets (either long-lasting nets or treated conventional nets) in all targeted areas.

2.  To provide universal access to quality diagnosis and treatment at health facilities (public and private) and through community malaria workers in targeted areas.

3.  To halt marketing and sale of oral artemisininmonotherapies.

4.  To closely monitor trends in malaria cases, to identify and take action to control outbreaks, and to undertake TES in sentinel sites.

Target Group

Approximately 250,000 individuals living in 300 villages of nine provinces where having high incidence of Malaria and difficult access to health services, The targeted populations include:

·         Indigenous populations

·         Ethnic minorities

·         Occupational migrants

·         Refugees living in the remote areas where there are insufficient health services

·         Outreach population

Two specific population groups in areas where malaria persists: migrant workers and their families working in Thailand’s western and eastern border regions, and the Thai communities that host them, and communities living in conflict zones in Thailand’s southern provinces.


1. Thai population in A1, A2 areas and communities living in conflict zones (Yala, Narathiwat and Songkhla provinces)

2. Migrant population 

2.1 “M1” is the designation given by the Ministry of Public Health to migrants who have been residing in Thailand for more than six months, the majority of whom are presumed to have registered with the Ministry of Labour(MOL), 

      2.2 “M2” is the designation given to migrants who have been residing in Thailand for less than six months; these “mobile migrants” are usually not registered with the MOL.  

1. Thai population

2. Migrant population; M1 and M2
