Malaria occurs throughout the tropics and represents a serious health threat to people exposed to risk of infection. Health care providers may be the only link between information for their traveling patients and that threat. The likelihood of infection can be reduced drastically by deliberate measures that minimize exposure to biting mosquitoes. However, personal protective measures alone rarely suffice where exposure to anopheline mosquitoes and infected human beings is appreciable.
