b) Malaria situation in VMW villages in 2004-2006

      Malaria morbidity and mortality data by other reasons received from VMWs increased compared with last year due to the full operation of the VMW project in 2006 with the better supply of the malaria drugs and RDTs. Especially, the majority of villagers progressively understand about the VMW project because of its broader broadcast through VMWs, local authority as well as the patients themselves that make increasing the utilization of the VMW service from day to day. Although, the figure augmented but the malaria case fatality rate and the malaria positive rate of children from 1-5 years old are dwindled from 2004-2006. Malaria situation in the VMW villages could be recapitulated and shown by the graphs below:
