Overview

Malaria is a life-threatening disease spread by mosquitoes, usually at night time and particularly in tropical climates. Symptoms develop within 10 days to 4 weeks, however the infection can lie dormant for several months before symptoms start to show.

Causes

Malaria is spread mainly by female Anopheles mosquitoes that carry the Plasmodium parasite, which is injected into the human bloodstream when the mosquitoes bite. The parasite then matures in the liver and infects your red blood cells. There are four different types of malaria parasites, which each have different severities of symptoms;  all types of malaria are still dangerous. Malaria affects the blood and so can also be contracted through anything that contaminates the blood, such as blood transfusions and organ transplants. However, this is extremely rare due to modern day screening processes.

Symptoms

FAQ

  • How can I prevent Malaria?

    Check the risk of malaria in the country you are visiting and be aware of the risk no matter how small the risk may be. Keep mosquito bites to a minimum by covering the skin with clothing through the night, using DEET-based insect repellent, sleeping under an insecticide covered mosquito net and using air conditioning. Make sure you are taking the antimalarial tablets supplied regularly and as recommended. Report any flu like symptoms to a doctor as soon as possible. Preventing is always better than curing, so stay away from stagnant water and make sure you are up to date on your vaccinations.
