    It is also more effective in this higher concentration. The burning of a mosquito coil is not as effective. Both positive and negative RDT results must always be confirmed by microscopy. This is called imported malaria. Often in high mountainous areas there is no risk, whilst in lower warmer areas there may be higher risk. The risk for acquiring malaria differs substantially from traveler to traveler and from region to region, even within a single country.

    The disease is uncommon in the UK. Your treatment will depend on what type of malaria you have, where you acquired the infection, and your health status, including any other drugs you take or medication allergies you have. The traveler should take a dose as soon as possible. It also provides PCR-based species confirmation. Malarone should be started for prophylaxis one to two days before potential malaria exposure. Seven years later the drug had reached Europe and was being used widely with the name 'the Jesuit's bark'.

    If the first blood test is negative but your doctor suspects you have malaria then you may be asked to have another blood test taken a couple of days later. The Malaria Information by Country Table provides detailed information about the specific parts of countries where malaria transmission does or does not occur. Risk is particularly high in Africa, much of Asia and parts of South America. Travelers from other countries may find this information helpful; however, because malaria prevention recommendations and the availability of antimalarial drugs vary, travelers from other countries should consult health care providers in their respective countries. Do you need malaria medication?
