Substantial recent progress has been made towards malaria elimination in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). According to WHO, the number of reported malaria case declined by 74% and number of malaria related deaths declined by 95% between 2012 and 2018. However, malaria continues to disproportionately affect forest workers and migrants. Due to forest-goers’ hard to reach and often mobile status, novel data collection methods are required to gain behavioral insights from this group to inform appropriate malaria elimination interventions.
