Malaria risk zones

The World Health Organization (WHO) divides the world's malaria areas into so-called risk zones:

A distinction is made between areas with none, minor and high Risk of infection - in the malaria map ("spread") accordingly White, green and red marked. Many large cities are malaria-free, and the transmission of malaria can be temporarily interrupted in the dry season or at high altitudes.

Individual risk assessment

When planning a trip to a malaria risk area, it makes sense to weigh up the individual risks with regard to the route, travel time, age and state of health.

For each risk zone result special recommendationswhich should be adapted to the individual factors of the traveler as well as to new developments. For example, various anti-malarial drugs that were able to safely prevent the outbreak of malaria just a few years ago have created resistance among the pathogens, so that the protection of these drugs is no longer sufficient today.
