What can I do to protect myself against malaria?

To protect yourself against malaria:
- avoid mosquito bites, particularly in the evening and night (anti-mosquito treated clothing and mosquito netting, air-conditioned rooms)
- taking preventive medication suited to your destination and your health.
This drug must be prescribed by your doctor, and taken for several days before your departure, during your stay, and for one to four weeks following your return, depending on the drug used.
