Travelers Malaria is considered an essential resource for practitioners of travel medicine. This updated book focuses on the epidemiology, prevention and treatment of malaria in non-immune travellers and immigrants. Each chapter is an up-to-date monograph (with an abstract) and contains detailed references to published literature as well as to appropriate web sites. The purpose of the book is to serve as a reference for specialists in the field and for any practitioner who may confront the complexities of caring for malaria-exposed travelers in both pre- and post-travel settings.
