Malaria: awareness and compliance with preventive measures

Alexandra Grieve Independent travel health adviser

Many articles have been written on malaria, but few have addressed travellers’ awareness and compliance with preventive measures. The UK has an increasing number of travellers visiting high-risk destinations and undertaking high-risk activities, who either do not seek pre-travel advice or do not act on it. Community involvement, developing cultural competence and improved communication may help to raise awareness and encourage travellers to seek advice and change their behaviour.
