Malaria Screening in Malaysia
For this project, Arina Ahmad and group need to get malaria sample as many as we could. Malaysia is currently in pre-elimination phase of the disease, so total number of cases is decreasing. Most cases reported are from rural region in Sabah and Sarawak – especially in palm oil/rubber plantation and logging area. And based on the malaria statistic, we’ve decided to try our luck in Lundu since they have the highest number of cases up till Marc 2011.
