Malaria is a tropical disease spread by mosquitoes, which can cause fever, headache and in severe cases, coma or death.
Approximately 1,500 travellers return to the UK with malaria every year.
Countries at risk
Malaria is found in more than 100 countries, mainly in tropical regions of the world, including:
large areas of Africa and Asia
Central and South America
Haiti and the Dominican Republic
parts of the Middle East
some Pacific islands
Malaria is not found in the UK – it may be diagnosed in travellers who return to the UK from risk areas.
The TravelHealthPro website has more information about the risk of malaria in specific countries.
Many cases of malaria can be prevented by the ABCD approach:
Awareness of risk: know your risk of malaria.
Bite prevention: avoid bites as much as possible.
Chemoprophylaxis: take the right antimalarial tablets.
Diagnosis: get immediate medical help for symptoms.
Signs and symptoms
Typical symptoms of malaria include shivering, fever, joint pain, vomiting, jaundice and convulsions. The classic symptom of malaria is a sudden coldness followed by fever and sweating.
In severe cases, malaria can progress extremely rapidly and induce a coma and even death within hours or days.
Young children and pregnant women are especially vulnerable to the disease.
If you are travelling to an area with a risk of malaria you may be recommended to take antimalarial tablets to prevent you from becoming infected. Be sure to also use repellent and mosquito nets to increase your level of safety. There are a range of different antimalarial tablets that will be prescribed to travellers based on several factors, including: destination, medical history, family history, current medications, previous problems with anti-malarial tablets, age, and pregnancy.
Being aware of your risk is a huge factor in protecting yourself from the disease, so be sure to speak to one of us while planning your trip.
