The border area between Thailand and Cambodia is of interest because this is the area from which global antimalarial drug resistance has originated over the past 30 years, and where the first data on ACT resistance has emerged. There is an active and highly diverse market of antimalarials in this area, including the use of drug cocktails in the private sector.

Since 2009, ACTwatch has conducted four outlet surveys (2009, 2011, 2013, and 2015), two household surveys (2009 and 2011), as well as qualitative and quantitative supply chain research (2009) in Cambodia. The 2013 outlet survey is available hereThe results from the 2015 outlet survey will be available soon.
