Malaria is a preventable, life-threatening disease transmitted by the bite of the female Anopheles mosquito. Prevention, recognising the symptoms and acting accordingly, is therefore essential knowledge for every seafarer.
This guidance is offered to our Members as part of the Club’s partnership with ISWAN to support their Seafarers Health Information Project (SHIP), an initiative that promotes and distributes health information materials to shipping companies, seafarers’ centres, and direct to seafarers.
The project consists of 10 core topics: food safety, on-board fitness, safe travel, healthy food, malaria, weight control, STI – HIV & Aids, mental care, dental care and skin care. Explore the other topics.
