Use mosquito repellents 

Apply insect repellent to exposed skin to deter mosquitoes from biting you. Repellents containing DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus are effective.

Wear long sleeves and pants

Covering your skin with clothing reduces the areas where mosquitoes can bite you, lowering the risk of contracting Malaria.

Sleep under mosquito nets

Mosquito nets treated with insecticide create a physical barrier between you and mosquitoes while you sleep, providing protection throughout the night.

Eliminate standing water

Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, so emptying containers like flower pots, buckets, and old tires helps eliminate potential breeding sites around your home.

Seek medical advice before travelling

If you’re planning to visit areas where Malaria is prevalent, consult with a healthcare professional or travel clinic. They can provide guidance on preventive measures such as antimalarial medication and other precautions specific to your destination.
