Medical information

Every year many travellers from the UK who travel to other countries get malaria, particularly in tropical countries such as some parts of Africa, Asia ans South America. It is caused by catching a bite from an infected mosquito.

Symptoms of malaria start out with high temperature and can appear as flu-like illness. Common symptoms include fever, headache, backache, joint pain, nausea and vomiting.  

Symptoms usually occur days or weeks after getting bitten, but can also take up to 1 year to appear. Therefore, you should suspect the possibility of getting malaria if you travelled to malaria risk areas within 1 year, particularly within the first 3 months.

You may also need vaccines and other health advice from a GP or travel clinic.


Taking anti-malaria tablets

  • The right anti malaria tablet provides good protection.
  • Take the right tablets for the area you are going to.
  • You may need to take anti-malarial tablets for a specific period before and after entering malaria risk areas depending on your destination and the type of tablet you are taking. Your doctor or pharmacist will be able to provide this information.
  • No anti-malaria tablet is 100% effective.


If you are pregnant, you should ideally avoid travelling to risk areas as your immune system may be weaker during pregnancy.

You can search for your destination on the  NHS Fit For Travel website and it will display anti-malarial prevention tablets and precautions, along with other heath advice specific to the location. 


Avoiding bites

Along with your anti-malarial tablets, you will also need specific measures to avoid getting bitten in the first place. Mosquitoes bites that cause malaria mostly occur in the evening. You are recommended to:

  • Wear long-sleeved clothing and long trousers if you need to go out at night.
  • Use insect repellent on exposed skin.
  • Using insecticide sprays, mosquito coils can reduce risk of bites.
  • If your room is unscreened, you should use mosquito net around your bed with insecticides impregnated.
