WHO Malaria Treatment Guidelines 2nd edition (2010)


Malaria is an important cause of death and illness in children and adults, especially in tropical countries. Malaria control requires an integrated approach, including prevention (primarily vector control) and prompt treatment with effective antimalarials. With the increase in resistance in treatment, there need to be an updated guidelines for a more effective approach to treat malaria, hence this 2nd edition of WHO Malaria Treatment guidelines (2010) from the previous 1st edition (2006).

While malaria is not endemic to the whole of Malaysia, there are still certain areas (particularly rural areas) where the presence of malaria is still felt. Therefore, we'll need to keep ourselves updated on the latest guidelines on the treatment of malaria. Where else to find the guidelines if it is not available in Malaysia? Of course, WHO guidelines would be an alternative.
