Malaria, a curable and preventable disease, is still a public health burden in Vietnam. Although many prevention and control strategies have been implemented, the goal to eliminate malaria is still a big challenge because of the increasing antimalarial drug resistance in Vietnam and other Greater Mekong Subregion neighbours. Drs Pham and Duong will discuss about antimalarial drug resistance and its recent trend in Vietnam.
