Relevance to General Practice

Malaria is one of the most important diseases of mankind, thought to be responsible for more than 300 million deaths throughout human history. Significant progress in the global fight against malaria means that overseas travellers are now much less likely to acquire this potentially fatal disease. Improved treatments also allow a simpler ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach for treating the diminishing number of cases of malaria in Australia. This article discusses the epidemiology of imported malaria within Australia; the implications of improved new treatments; and how these two factors impact on the risk-benefit balance when treating and preventing malaria in overseas travellers, now and into the future.
