Malaria Prevention Service
Malaria is a potentially deadly disease caused by the Plasmodium parasite. It is transmitted through the bite of infected mosquitoes and can be found in many tropical and subtropical regions worldwide. Travellers to these areas are at risk of contracting malaria if they are not adequately protected.
Malaria prevention measures include taking antimalarial medication, using insect repellent, and sleeping under mosquito nets. It is important to note that there is no vaccine for malaria; therefore, prevention is key to avoiding this disease while travelling.
Antimalarials are drugs used to prevent or treat malaria. The type of medication may depend on the destination you are travelling to and the specific strain of malaria in that region. It is essential to consult with a healthcare professional before travelling to determine the appropriate medication for you.
These medications must be taken before, during, and after travel as directed to provide adequate protection against malaria.
