Malaria

In 2019, an estimated 229 million cases of malaria occurred worldwide, with 94% of these cases occurring in the WHO Africa Region

Although no Malaria Prophylaxis provides 100% cover, one should consider that 90% protection is better than no protection at all. Therefore, the use of Malaria Prophylaxis is highly recommended as a second line of defence against malaria.

Travel Doctor can assist pregnant women and children with Mefloquine (Lariam) as a Malaria Prophylaxis option.
