The advice of monks and grandmothers is highly respected by Cambodians.  Control and Prevention of Malaria (CAP-Malaria)'s target group interview results demonstrate that face to face education through monks and grandmothers will contribute to the project's Behavior Change Communication objectives.  

In July 2013, CAP-Malaria in collaboration with the Tasanh Health Center conducted one of many project community health training seminars in Samlot, Battambang province.  The photo shows Mr. Pov Pheng, Vice Chief of Tasanh Health Center, training to 36 monks and grandmas on the cause of malaria transmission, how to prevent it and how to carry the message to their communities.
