dc.description.abstractChloroquine and mefloquine have superior safety profiles in pregnancy, though all antimalarials are effective for prophylaxis. Antimalarials will decrease the severity of maternal malaria infection and malaria-associated anemia, while decreasing the incidence of low birth weight and perinatal death in women having their first or second baby (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on systematic review of consistent, good-quality patient-oriented evidence).eng
