The quality of health in Cambodia is rising along with its growing economy. The public health care system has a high priority from the Cambodian government and with international help and assistance, Cambodia has seen some major and continuous improvements in the health profile of its population since the s, with a steadily rising life expectancy.

Among the six health facilities, three were district hospitals located in Tororo, Kanungu, and Apac, and three were regional referral hospitals located in Jinja, Kabale, and Mubende. The hospitals were selected to represent regions of high (Tororo and Apac), medium (Jinja and Mubende), and low (Kanungu and Kabale) malaria transmission intensity.

There were an estimated severe malaria-related hospitalizations from to in the US. • Pf accounted for most of the severe malaria-related hospitalizations, followed by Pv, Po, and Pm. Severe malaria was most common among inpatients who were male, Black, and aged 45–64 by: 3.
