  • Description:
    Many people acquire malaria, a potentially life-threatening

    disease, during travel to tropical and subtropical

    countries. Malaria occurs in most of sub-Saharan Africa,

    southern and southeast Asia, Mexico, Haiti, the Domhican

    Republic, Central and South America, Papua New

    Guinea, Vanuatu, and the Solomon Islands. Major cities

    in Asia and South America are nearly malaria free; cities

    in Africa, India, and Pakistan are not. There is generally

    less risk of malaria at altitudes above 1500 meters (4500

    feet).
