The guidelines are for healthcare workers who advise travellers, but may also be of use to prospective travellers who wish to read about the options themselves.
The Advisory Committee on Malaria Prevention (ACMP) prophylaxis guidelines are for UK-based visitors to malaria-endemic areas, and may not be appropriate for use by people who live in endemic areas.
Occasionally, there may be a need to issue temporary recommendations. Please see the temporary recommendations from the National Travel Health Network and Centre for the latest updates for Bangladesh, Cape Verde and South Africa.
These guidelines deal with malaria, but malaria prevention is only one aspect of pre-travel advice. An overall risk-assessment-based package of travel health advice should be provided to the traveller.
