Public Health England (PHE) Advisory Committee on Malaria Prevention (ACMP) has updated the malaria prevention guidelines for travellers from the UK. Changes to the previous guidelines are highlighted in the executive summary and will be reflected in the information provided on TravelHealthPro. 

Key updates include:

  • Revision of the insect bite avoidance section, emphasising the increasing importance of these measures
  • Inclusion of several new maps 

The malaria guidelines are a practical resource for health professionals advising travellers. They may also be of interest to travellers interested in further information about malaria, including different antimalarial options. The document contains country recommendations, advice for travellers with special risks such as pregnant women and a frequently asked questions section. All the country specific information is also available on our individual Country Information page

It is essential that health professionals advising travellers about malaria are familiar with the current ACMP malaria guidelines, and should check regularly for subsequent updates, as recommendations may change.
