Review of malaria risk and prevention for use in corporate travel.
J Occup Environ Med. 2008 Aug; 50(8):951-9.JO

Abstract

Malaria continues to be a significant, life-threatening illness in many parts of the world. For corporate travelers from countries with low endemicity, the risk of infection is considerable. Many corporate travelers are unaware of their risk, unsure of the correct preventative measures, and receive incorrect advice regarding prevention or do not comply with advice they have received. This review addresses the risk of malaria to the nonimmune corporate traveler, disease transmission, and recommended means of prevention, including prevention of mosquito bites and antimalaria chemoprophylaxis.
