Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted through bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. There are five parasite species that cause malaria in humans, and two of these species p.falciparum and p.vivax pose the highest threat.

Travelling to a high-risk area?

If you are planning to travel, speak to one of our pharmacists to establish if you require antimalarial drugs. The pharmacist will check the risk of malaria and also the type of activities you will be carrying out to decide if you will need anti-malarial drugs.

Different Types of antimalarials

The two commonly used antimalarial drugs available are Doxycycline and Malarone (generic and branded). During your consultation, a pharmacist will explain which antimalarial drugs are suitable for you and the main pros and cons of each type.

Supply of antimalarials

If you are planning on travelling, please book a consultation well in advance or visit our pharmacy so that you can receive maximum protection from the antimalarials. Also, the pharmacist will give you advice on how to minimize your risk of mosquito bites and other appropriate precautions for your travel.
