Malaria in Travellers

Malaria is a parasitic infection found in the tropics and sub tropics, which can be potentially fatal if untreated. Figures from Public Health England show that in 2017, there was 11% increase in the number of cases of malaria in UK travellers compared to previous years and 6 reported deaths. It is an easily preventable and treatable disease.

It is important that all travellers to malaria risk areas get medical advice and malaria prevention if required.

This is especially important if travelling to West Africa, East Africa, South East Asia and the Amazon where the malignant malaria, caused by Falciparum strain, are more common.
