Malaria preventative

PNG is a high malaria risk area.  It is said that 1 in 5 expatriates not taking any preventative will get it.  The good news is that we are taking preventative medicine and it is treatable if we get it.  We sleep under mosquito nets and we take 150mg Chloroquine twice a week and 100mg Doxycycline once a day.  There are other options but we didn’t like the side effects some of the other choices have.
