What is Malaria?


Malaria is caused when a human is bitten by mosquito that has been infected by the plasmodium parasite. A parasitic bite causes liver and red blood cell contamination, resulting in the parasites growing and multiplying. Malaria is usually spread by infected female mosquitoes who are carrying the disease but it cannot be passed directly from human to human.

Malaria is a serious tropical disease and if not diagnosed and treated promptly, can be fatal. The disease is found in more than 100 countries, mainly in tropical regions of the world including:
- Substantial regions of Africa and Asia
- Central and South America
- Haiti and the Dominican Republic
- Parts of the Middle East
- Some Pacific Islands, such as Papua New Guinea


Malaria is not a problem in the UK. You can find out more information about the risk of malaria in specific countries on the Fit for Travel website.

How does the treatment work?


Malaria therapy is designed to stop infection from arising in the first place or developing it it has already been contracted. Malaria thrives off certain enzymes to develop and reproduce, therefore an antimalarial treatment will work hinder this.
The type of antimalarial required depends on several factors, such as where you are travelling to, known allergies, medication history, age, whether you are pregnant and any other patient-related factors.

We recommend you speak to your doctor or pharmacist for help and advice when looking for the right therapy. The SmartMeds Team are happy to answer your questions about selecting the most appropriate anti-malarial treatment.
SmartMeds Clinic offers four types of antimalarials. Each medication is unique and it is important that you identify the most suitable therapy for your specific requirements.
