Malaria prophylaxis

Latest NPA malaria prophylaxis information leaflet.

Yellow fever

The NPA Travel health page is currently being updated.

When advising travellers on requirements for malaria, members should take into consideration the licensing for available over-the-counter products. For children, doses required for chemoprophylaxis may be higher than the licensed doses, therefore, off-licence doses cannot be sold and must be prescribed. Prescription-only medicines cannot be sold over-the-counter under any circumstances for malaria chemoprophylaxis for any age group.
