Malaria prophylactic recommendations for travelers to Africa:
Expert opinion differs regarding the best approach to malaria prophylaxis. It is important to bear in mind that malaria may be contracted despite chemoprophylaxis, especially in areas where chloroquine resistance has been reported. Both chloroquine- resistant and normal strains of malaria are prevalent in Africa including Plasmodium Falciparum. MALARONE is usually prescribed. Typically, it is one tablet daily, started a few days before going into the bush and then continued for one week afterwards. Mefloquine (brand name Lariam) is known to have undesirable side effects.
- Please remember that the best precaution is the preventative kind.
- Avoid being bitten by using mosquito repellents liberally.
- Wear long-sleeved shirts and trousers/slacks in the evenings.
- Please use the mosquito net over your bed where supplied/available.
- Where provided, please use the insecticide supplied to kill any mosquitoes that may have flown into your room.
- Mosquito coils are also effective.
Malaria is transmitted by a very small percentage of female Anopheles mosquitoes. They are mainly active in the early evening and throughout the night. Malaria transmission is at its highest during the warmer and wetter months of November through to April. From May through to October the risks of contracting malaria are reduced. There is also less prevalence in remote areas where safari camps/lodges are situated; nonetheless, you need to consider taking preventative measures.
There is a 6 to 7 day minimum incubation period before symptoms present themselves. If you become ill on your return, while still on prophylaxis or even once you have stopped taking them, ensure that your medical practitioner does everything to establish that your illness is not malaria.
Malaria can be prevented if you are sensible and take basic precautions. There have been very few cases of guests contracting malaria. It is inadvisable for pregnant women to visit malarial areas as malaria infection during pregnancy can be detrimental to mother and child. Caution should be exercised with small children as they can be more susceptible and are unable to take some forms of medication.
