FRONTIER RISK

Risk | Executive Protections | Medical

In 2017, there were an estimated 219 million cases of malaria in 87 countries. While approximately 90% of malaria cases and deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa. It goes without saying that the risk of contracting Malaria whilst traveling in Africa far out-ways any other threat to you as traveller. For this reason our team (including medically qualified Protection Officers) provides immediate Malaria testing & treatment (antibiotics) along with contingencies to hospitalise or evacuate. Identifying the symptoms & raid initiation of treatment  is often the difference between life and death as the parasite can rapidly destroy red blood cells (Hemolysis) or cause Cerebral infection. Africa is rife with many other significant & deadly tropical diseases. The good news is with early detection & treatment, prognosis is good.
