Expatriates considering a move to West Africa and South Asia have been reminded to seek advice on malaria after figures show a 30 per cent increase in cases in just two years.
Figures from the Health Protection Agency (HPA), released to mark World Malaria Day, reveal that last year there were 1,495 newly-diagnosed cases of malaria among UK residents alone.
Around half of the malaria diagnosed in the UK is from people who have travelled to West Africa and South Asia, where the disease is prevalent.
However, people looking to travel to these countries can find that malaria is easily preventable with anti-malarial medication before setting off.
Dr Jane Jones, head of the HPA's travel and migrant health section, explained: "Malaria is a potentially deadly disease but is almost completely preventable.
"Anyone who is planning to travel to a tropical destination should always seek advice from their GP or travel health clinic before their trip."
And looking into expatriate health insurance options can ensure that travellers stay safe when relocating overseas.
Expatriate Healthcare specialise in providing international health insurance. Make sure you're protected.
