Malaria is a common and potentially severe disease that is endemic in more than 100 countries worldwide. It is estimated that more than 125 million international travellers visit these countries every year, many of whom fall ill with malaria while in these countries and more than 10 000 fall ill on returning home. It is said that more than 3 million South African residents travel to malaria areas each year and are at risk of contracting malaria.
