Is antimalarial medication needed and is it very hard to tolerate?
Malaria is potentially a fatal disease that is transmitted through insects’ bites. Malaria may also cause serious health problems that can linger. Currently, there’s no vaccine available to prevent malaria. However, effective medication can help to prevent this disease and, for most travellers, this medication is well tolerated. It’s important to visit us as early as possible before your departure, since you must start taking this medication before your stay in a malarial area.
During your consultation at our clinic, you’ll be given important advice on how to avoid insect bites.
