The Regional Malaria CSO platform was established in 2014 with the initiative of Louis Da Gama and Promboon Panitchpakdi, CSO representatives at the RAI RSC as a CSO constituency understanding the gap of coordination and communication at the national and regional level. It also aimed to address the issue of malaria vulnerable and risk population who are not always the priority for the countries due to their legal status or nature of work. Since its establishment platform has been able to create a network of more than 50 NGO and community-based organizations and network in Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Lao PDR and Vietnam.
