In 2006 there was a huge epidemic of malaria in which almost 40% of all hospital deaths were due to malaria. In response to this needless loss of life due to a preventable and treatable disease a “Children focussed malaria control program’ was started in 2007 in Udalguri district of Assam, which was one of the worst affected by the scourge of malaria.
