BAGUIO CITY: The Cordillera is on track toward achieving the national government’s goal of becoming a Malaria-free region with cases drastically going down over the years. Department of Health-Cordillera Regional Office Entomologist II Ursula Segundo said malaria cases continue to go down and for this year no indigenous or local transmission of cases has been recorded by the office. In 2012, seven malaria cases (three from Apayao and four from Kalinga) were recorded in the region. Segundo also reported that Baguio City and Benguet have long been declared as Malaria-free.
