Abstract: The response to combating malaria in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) has been impressive, however, many challenges remain. Tackling the spread of artemisinin resistance amongst mobile and migrant populations is a key piece of this increasingly complex puzzle. Mobile and migrant populations (MMP) are frequently "hidden" and difficult to access becaue of geographical, language and cultural barriers. While some information gaps exist, much has been learned in addressing malaria among these groups in recent years. This report describes the actions to be done to control malaria among mobile and migrant workers and other high-risk groups in the GMS, to monitor profress and evaluate the impact of interventions.
