Malaria Information

What is Malaria?

  • Malaria is a potentially life threatening infectious disease caused by Plasmodium parasites.
  • It is spread from one human to another through the bite of the infected Anopheles mosquitoes.
  • The four common types of malaria causing parasites include Plasmodium Falciparum, P.ovale, P.vivax and P.Malariae.
  • Plasmodium falciparum causes the most severe disease (Cerebral malaria) and is responsible for many malaria deaths worldwide.


Malaria Prevention... What can YOU do?

  • Take regular malaria chemoprophylaxis (prevention medicine) as prescribed by your medical practitioner or a travel doctor.
  • Apply mosquito repellent (DEET based) to any exposed skin every 6-8 hours.
  • Wear long pants, long sleeve shirts, socks and closed shoes.
  • Wear insecticide treated clothing.
  • Sleep under a insecticide treated mosquito net.
  • Stay indoors after dark with windows and doors closed.
  • Maintain the room air-conditioning at less than 22 degrees Celsius.
  • Use insecticides to spray your room at least one hour prior to entering in the evening to sleep.
  • Never travel without a Malaria Rapid Test Kit for early detection of malaria.

Always seek prompt medical attention if you are feeling flu-like symptoms following a visit to a known malaria area—it may be Malaria.


How to diagnose malaria?

  • Early diagnosis and treatment of malaria decreases disease & prevents death.
  • Malaria is most commonly diagnosed using ‘rapid test’ technology where a finger prick sample of blood is tested and a result obtained within 15 minutes.  
  • You may still have malaria, even after a negative test.
  • If malaria is highly suspected, follow up tests should be used and repeated every 6 hours until you are able to reach a doctor or medical facility.


What are the signs and symptoms of malaria?

Malaria symptoms start to appear 6 or more days (usually 10-21days) after being bitten by an infected mosquito.  Early symptoms are ‘flu- like’ and include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Chills & rigors (shivering)
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Dry cough

If left untreated malaria can progress to severe illness including fits, coma and possible death.


How to treat malaria?

  • There are different types of malaria medicines for treatment of malaria.
  • It is important that treatment is provided under the guidance of a health professional as there a many counterfeit and obsolete medications on the market.
  • Consult a travel doctor for further advice on the most appropriate medication for you and to discuss potential side effects.
  • If taken correctly, these medicines greatly reduce your risk of getting malaria, however no medication provides complete protection and it is important that it is used with other prevention methods.


When am I no longer at risk of Malaria?

  • There may be a long incubation period after being bitten by an infected mosquito. Therefore, it is possible for malaria to occur even after an individual has left malaria risk area.
  • If you get sick after visiting a malaria area, do a malaria rapid test and consult your doctor as soon as possible for further advice.
