Advisory committee on malaria prevention (ACMP)

The Advisory Committee on Malaria Prevention (ACMP) provides guidelines for health professionals on the prevention of malaria for travellers from the UK.

The ACMP is an expert committee that was established in 1998 to formulate guidelines on malaria prevention in the UK. The guidelines are used by medical professionals and other travel medicine advisors based in the UK and many other countries. The guidelines are also the basis for recommendations from the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC).

Today the ACMP is overseen by Public Health England (PHE).
