Malaria Prevention in Travelers

                      Since malaria in Thailand and in South East Asia are the multi drug resistance strain. The used of antimalarial prophylaxis should be advised by qualified medical staff only. Over-the-counter antimalarial drug is not recommended.

                      In our clinic we provide counseling on basic knowledge of malaria, epidemiology, how to prevent yourself from malaria and whether antimalarial drug is recommended for you. You should have some basic knowledge about malaria.

We usually have 3 options of antimalarial prophylaxis
                        1 Take antimalarial drug to prevent malaria
                        2 Not to take antimalarial drug
                        3 Carry a standby (emergency) drugs

             Counseling with our staff is strongly recommended in this issue.
