Why malaria prophylax becomes useless

Will Italy ever understands it?

Preventive care for malaria, for tourists visiting Kenya, is now outdated.
Major scientific achievements that Kenya has experienced for the first, more than ten years ago are bearing fruit with numbers that reward the constancy of the National Health and decisive push of researchers and luminaries such as the Italian Mauro Saio, more twenty years he committed on this front.
"Now not only is more harmful, but also less secure new medicines that you take only if the sopraggiunga malaria - explains Habit - the combination treatment, normally available in all pharmacies Kenyan, it is safe and for those who do not live near a health facility that can verify the existence of malaria, you can also equip themselves with a test to control it on their own.
As for the pregnancy test, there is an effective method that replaces the slide ".
Dr. Saio so you feel to recommend to anyone who wants to bear in Kenya, to prevent malaria prophylaxis that only guarantees partial coverage by the virus, not good for the liver and is less economical medicines that vendonmo in Kenya.
It's hard, out of habit, to think that one African country is endowed with the best medicines to those that can be found in Italy, but actually being the one against malaria one of the major battles fought in the last ten years by doctors in Nairobi, the Kenya today we can say leads the world, thanks to the combination of traditional medicines and other (those containing artemisinin) that have dual action to eradicate the disease and stop the spread of the virus, sterilizing the Anopheles mosquito and thus preventing their reproduction .
So no prophylaxis and, once arrived in Kenya, go to a pharmacy and buy the kits for malaria.
At a cost of ten euro and with an average duration of five years, before the deadline.
Great to keep in Italy for those who want to go back or move on to other persons who intend to go there in the future.
