Malariaprophylaxe und Selbsttherapie 1990 - Probleme und aktuelle Lösungen


Heusser, Rolf; Steffen, Robert; Mächler, R; Fuchs, E (1991). Malariaprophylaxe und Selbsttherapie 1990 - Probleme und aktuelle Lösungen. Schweizerische Rundschau für Medizin PRAXIS, 80(4):49-52.

Abstract

For successful malaria prophylaxis, future travelers need to be informed about the risks of infection and about systematic measures to be taken against mosquito bites. For visits in areas of high transmission, continuous chemoprophylaxis is recommended, whereas in regions with low transmission a stand-by medication for self-therapy is sufficient. Each of these four measures has some problems which are discussed here in addition to the recently published recommendations by the Swiss Working Group for Medical Advice to Travelers.
