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

ACTwatch 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. Results from all surveys and research are available at the Results & publications page.
