Recommended:

    • Malaria prophylaxis. Malaria risk – including the malignant (P. Falciparum) form – occurs in Hainan and Yunnan. Chloroquine and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine resistant P. falciparum reported. Risk of P. Vivax malaria exists in Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Guizhou, Hainan, Sichuan, Xizang (only along the valley of the Zangbo river in the extreme south-east) and Yunnan. There is generally very low malaria risk (P. vivax only) in Anhui, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangsu, Jiangxi and Shandong, although within these provinces this risk may be higher in areas of local outbreak. Where transmission exists, it occurs below 1500 m: from July to November north of latitude 33 degrees north, from May through December between 33 and 25 degrees north, and throughout the year south of 25 degrees north. There is no malaria risk in the urban areas or densely populated plain areas. In general, tourists do not need to take malaria prophylaxis unless they plan to stay in remote rural areas in the provinces listed above. Recommended prevention in risk areas:II ; in Hainan and Yunnan: IV
