Re: Papua New Guinea malaria medicaton?
I would rather you bring malaria meds. Better to prepare and not need it than not have it but need one, right? It's called KINA tablet. I know you can get them in drugs store in Indonesia, easily, but I'm not in other countries, or where you are right now. Ask a pharmacist anyway. I would worry more on dengue fever though than malaria, because it's also a mosquito caused but it's actually deadly. I survived dengue 3 years ago, but was hospitalized for more than 1 week. Here's what you need to watch for, the dengue mosquitoes come out in the morning (6 to 10 am) and in the late afternoon (around dusk, 4 to 7 pm). They like clean places (bedrooms, bathrooms, and piles of dirty laundry). They're small, black with white stripes. Because they're small, many times, you don't realize when they bite until they already got some of your blood. So be extra careful. This also goes to all of you who wants to go to Bali, Sumatra, and Java.
