Although there are fewer cases of malaria, it is still a problem in Cambodia

Health authorities have recorded a total of 35,713 cases of malaria since the beginning of 2012. There have been 28 deaths. Although the total number of cases so far is less than last year, malaria is still a common infection throughout the country, with the exception of the capital Phnom Penh.

Travellers In Cambodia can reduce their risk of exposure to malaria by taking all necessary precautions to avoid mosquito bites. Anti-malaria medication is recommended unless the traveller remains in the capital Phnom Penh.
