Emergency Standby Treatment

Patients may travel with an emergency supply of medication for the treatment of malaria. These treatments should be kept on standby until symptoms present and should be reserved for individuals travelling to remote destinations with limited medical access. Doxycycline, Quinine and Malarone are some of the options for emergency treatment, the choice of medication would depend on the same factors mentioned above.

Do I still need antimalarial tablets if I used to live in the high-risk country?

If you have lived in a high risk malaria zone in the past it does not provide with long-term protection against malaria, which is lost very soon after leaving the endemic country. Patients are still recommended to take appropriate precautions against malaria even if they are visiting a high risk country they once lived in.
