Village Drama Against Malaria broadcast live on Facebook a malaria awareness and engagement performance by villagers in Phnom Dambong village, Pailin Province. Over 300 villagers and local authorities attended the fun, lively, sometimes raucous performance of music, karaoke, short health talks, games and drama.

On 25 April, World Malaria Day 2017, Village Drama Against Malaria broadcast live on Facebook a malaria awareness and engagement performance by villagers in Phnom Dambong village, Pailin Province.

Over 300 villagers and local authorities attended the fun, lively, sometimes raucous performance of music, karaoke, short health talks, games and drama.

The show was held to support Cambodia’s efforts to eliminate falciparum malaria – the most deadly form of malaria and particularly important in western Cambodia where multidrug resistant malaria parasites have emerged and are spreading to north-western Thailand and into Myanmar.
