Prognosis of Malaria

Reading time: 1 min

Malaria is a potentially fatal disease, but it is preventable and treatable.   

Mortality amongst travellers who catch malaria varies between 2-3%. The main factor associated with a poor prognosis is a delay in diagnosis and initiating treatment.  

This is why it is very important to consistently follow the preventative measures recommended at the pre-travel consultation, and to urgently seek medical advice whenever a fever appears during or after a trip to tropical zones.
