If you would like to know more about the fight against malaria, visit www.malar­i­ uk where you can see a short film in which nar­ra­tor Jo shares her story, Mak­ing Malaria

No More.

If your chil­dren are go­ing to travel, take a look at Jo’s list of pre­cau­tions you should take:

Do their pack­ing be­cause they won’t take the right things!

Make sure they visit the doc­tor well in ad­vance of trav­el­ling and they un­der­stand the risks of any trop­i­cal dis­ease, be­cause if they un­der­stand the risks they can pro­tect them­selves.

En­sure they take the full course of malaria tablets and in­coun­try pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sures as in­structed by their physi­cian.

Don’t buy cheap anti-malaria tablets, get a proper pre­scrip­tion.

If they re­turn with flu-like symp­toms don’t hes­i­tate to take your chil­dren to hospi­tal and ask for them to be tested for malaria.
