Treatment

In most cases, healthcare providers can successfully treat people with malaria. To decide which medicine to use, they should try to identify the species of parasite responsible and the geographical location where the person was infected. International travel clinics, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization offer up-to-date information on the geography of malaria, including

  • Which species are present in which areas
  • Whether chloroquine-resistant parasites are present
  • Which seasons of the year carry the greatest risk
