The information supplied is derived from a number of reliable sources and is compared and compiled into the alphabetical lists found on this web site.

Countries requiring malaria prophylaxis
should be regarded as being at risk all year round and you should also assume that the whole country is at risk unless otherwise indicated. The malaria regimen is the recommended regimen for a country. Use of the incorrect regimen may not provide adequate cover.

When there are two different regimens for the same country, they are area specific. Read the text to find out which regimen is suitable for the area you require.

Where regimen 1 is indicated there is Chloroquine resistance in that region and it is very likely to be the Falciparum malaria which is the most serious form of the disease. In this instance it is vitally important that travellers take adequate prophylaxis.

Remember:- No prophylaxis is 100% effective but not taking anti-malarials where they are indicated will put you at greater risk should you get the disease. Remember - Malaria is a killer!

Malaria prevention guidelines for travellers to Goa

In early 2007 a number of cases of Plasmodium falciparum malaria were reported in UK travellers returning from Goa. None were known to have taken malaria chemoprophylaxis. During the same period, a number of cases were also seen in other European travellers.

This has resulted in the guidelines being revised to recommending chemoprophylaxis for all travellers visiting Goa.

The current recommendations for travellers visiting Goa are as follows:

Malaria chemoprophylaxis is recommended to those travellers who will be visiting Goa , particularly areas north of Panaji. The recommended chemoprophylaxis is chloroquine plus proguanil. Alternatives are mefloquine, Malarone, or doxycycline.

All travellers to Goa should also use mosquito bite avoidance measures.

All travellers should seek medical attention promptly if they become unwell whilst away or after returning and inform their doctor that they have been in a malarious area. The healthcare worker should consider malaria in every ill patient who has recently returned from the tropics; for those with a fever, the illness should be considered to be malaria until proven otherwise.
