Good evening, thanks for the question

Malaria is an acute and chronic infectious disease caused by the Plasmodium parasite that attacks erythrocytes. Complaints in the form of disappearing fever arise, when the fever disappears accompanied by chills, sweating, can be accompanied by headaches, muscle and joint pain, decreased appetite, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Risk factors for malaria infection include:
1. History of previous malaria.
2. Living in an area that is malaria endemic.
3. Been visiting 1-4 weeks in malaria endemic areas.
4. History of blood transfusion.

Malaria classification includes:
1. Malaria falciparum, found Plasmodium falciparum.
2. Malaria vivaks is found Plasmodium vivax.
3. Malaria ovale, found Plasmodium ovale.
4. Malaria malariae, found Plasmodium malariae.
5. Malaria knowlesi, found Plasmodium knowlesi.

Treatment of children and adults in cases of falciparum malaria (except in first trimester pregnant women), vivax malaria, ovale malaria, malaria malaria, and malaria knowlesi (except in first trimester pregnant women) without complications is by administering artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACT) . One form of ACT is a combination of dihydroartemisinin + piperaquine or called DHP. So it is appropriate that DHP belongs to the artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACT).

For dosage and duration of administration, you should consult with the treating doctor because it can be different depending on body weight and type of malaria.

That's all, hope you can help
