The map below shows regions of the world where Malaria is present. Some medicines required to help prevent malaria require a private prescription from your doctor. You will have to pay for this medication - we are happy to quote you a price.  Anti-malarials are not 100% effective, but are recommended in the red areas of the map.  

Make sure you always cover up and apply insect repellent (which we also sell!).It is also important to ensure that you have plenty of high factor sun block e.g. factor 30 to 50 if you are going to a hot country in summer.
