MALARIA IN SOUTH AFRICA

St. Lucia is a Low Risk Malaria Area
The best way to protect yourself is to prevent mosquito bites

The current Status:

"Dr Brian Sharp, director of the Medical Research Councils (MRC) Malaria Research Lead Programme says that the success of the malaria control programme has had a very positive impact on the socio-economic development in the Northern KZN region, as well as in the quality of life of the local residents. The tourists are pouring into the region because one of the biggest tourist attractions in KwaZulu-Natal, Lake St Lucia, is now malaria free."

Prevention of Malaria:

The best way to prevent malaria is personal protection against the mosquito's itself. Malaria mosquitoes mostly bite after dark. Wear long sleeves shirts and trousers in the afternoon and evening; stay in-doors if possible. Use insect repellent on exposed skin. It will help to sleep under a bed net or in a netted tent or hut or in a house or caravan with screens. Close windows and doors at night. Spray insecticide aerosol and/or burn mosquito coil at night.

Treatment:

Oral treatment is used for uncomplicated malaria, intravenous or intramuscular treatment for severe malaria. Symptomatic treatment is given for fever and other symptoms. Combination therapy is being advocated to delay the onset of resistance.

Chloroquine: cheapest, rapid action, symptomatic relief, but resistance to chloroquine is common, and it cannot clear the parasite. It is sometimes used in conjunction with Pyrimethamine-Sulphadoxine (S-P) because of rapid initial action.

Sulphadoxine-Pyrimethamine (S-P) : to treat chloroquine-resistant uncomplicated malaria. Cheap. Convenient single-dose treatment. Sometimes causes vomiting and skin rashes. Resistance to S-P has also been found.

Quinine: to treat severe malaria and uncomplicated malaria resistant to chloroquine, S-P and mefloquine. Severe side effects, extremely bitter, long regimen, therefore not often used as oral treatment. Intravenous treatment suitable for treating pregnant.
