How Maloff Protect works

When infected mosquitoes bite, they pass the malaria parasite into the bloodstream.

Maloff Protect and other antimalarial drugs work by killing the parasite, preventing you from developing malaria.

Maloff Protect has to be taken as a complete course to be effective. Maloff Protect should be taken 1 or 2 days before you leave, at the same time once a day while you are away, and for 7 days after you leave the malaria area.

Stopping Maloff Protect early puts you at risk of getting malaria as it takes 7 days to ensure that any parasites in your blood following a bite from an infected mosquito are killed.
