Travelers, how can you protect yourself from malaria?

We already told you about dengue fever and its effects in a previous news item. Dengue fever is often associated with another disease when it comes to long-distance travel: malaria. Unlike dengue fever, preventive treatment is available, and medication can be obtained by prescription. As travelers and expatriates are vulnerable to this disease, it is essential to take out travel or expatriate insurance before you leave.


Long-distance travel in focus

The areas most at risk from malaria are in Africa, South America and Asia, so travelers to these regions are often warned. Nevertheless, “imported” malaria made its appearance on the European continent a few years ago, reaching the worrying figures of 3,560 cases and 4 deaths recorded in France in 2011.
