Answer: Malaria is prevalent across Sub-Saharan Africa. For visiting Uganda, we recommend you take all the necessary precautions, such as taking anti-malarial medication, wearing trousers, long sleeves and using mosquito repellant in the evening, and sleeping under a mosquito net at night.
Please consult a travel doctor before your trip because some drugs need to be started before you arrive in order to be effective. They will recommend which medication is right for you.
The most common malaria prophylaxis medications for Uganda are:
- Malarone (atovaquone/proguanil combination)
