ABSTRACTMalaria is a risk to travelers in many parts of the world. Physicians need to tailor chemoprevention strategies to take into account resistance patterns. Patient education is important, especially for those travelers least likely to comply with prevention strategies. Most travelers who contract malaria do not become ill until they return home, so recognition and treatment are crucial.
