Travel and Malaria
Many Americans today enjoy relatively safe trips to foreign countries. But travelers need to be aware that other countries have health risks that are different from those in the United States. Malaria, a disease contracted from the bite of infected mosquitoes, is a serious concern for people traveling to tropical areas. However, preventive measures can help ensure you will stay healthy during and after your trip.
