Hello Shindy, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Malaria prophylaxis can indeed be given to people who want to travel to malaria endemic areas in a short time. However, malaria prophylactic drugs still do not protect you 100% from malaria and must be combined with mosquito bite prevention efforts, for example by using long sleeves and long pants, using mosquito repellent creams (repelent), and sleeping using mosquito nets that have been given mosquito repellent.

The drugs recommended for malaria prophylaxis are Atovaquone-proguanil, doxycycline, or mefloquine. The selection of these drugs is adjusted to the condition of each person (there are no contraindications to the use of the drug in that person). Because these drugs are classified as hard drugs, you should check with your doctor first. These drugs should not be purchased without a doctor's prescription and their use must also be in accordance with the instructions of your doctor.
