MALARIA MATTERS is an e-learning course based on the UKHSA document

‘Guidelines for malaria prevention in travellers from the UK ‘

Please note: This course is currently being updated to the latest UK Malaria Guidelines which were updated on 16th January 2024.  This is quite an extensive piece of work and it is anticipated the updated course will be available in the summer of 2024 when it will be moved onto a new platform where a certificate of completion will be available but there may be a modest fee.  The main change to the Malaria Guidelines are itemised on pages 7 and 8.  The main issue to affect practice in the UK is the withdrawal of proguanil from the UK market.  A news item was posted on TravelHealthPro here.

Thank you for your patience.
