Inter-regional meeting on vivax malaria in Asia : Report of the meeting, SEARO, New Delhi, 23-24 April 2009
AbstractMalaria caused by Plasmodium vivax is prevalent in several countries in Asia. Though the principle in prevention and control of the disease is similar to that of the Plasmodium falciparum there are several issues that are totally different and unique for this parasite especially the treatment and chemoprophylaxis. The meeting was organized to discuss achievements and problems in controlling vivax malaria in some selected countries in the Western Pacific and South-East Asia Regions. The meeting identified knowledge gaps especially in the use of primaquine as anti-relapse therapy and other operational issues.
