Abstract

Purpose of Review: Malaria is a prevalent disease in travelers to and residents of malaria-endemic regions. Health care workers in both endemic and non-endemic settings should be familiar with the latest evidence for the diagnosis, management and prevention of malaria. This article will discuss the recent malaria epidemiologic and medical literature to review the progress, challenges, and optimal management of malaria. Recent Findings: There has been a marked decrease in malaria-related global morbidity and mortality secondary to malaria control programs over the last few decades. This exciting progress is tempered by continued levels of high transmission in some regions, the emergence of artemisinin-resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Southeast Asia, and the lack of a highly protective malaria vaccine. In the United States (US), the number of travelers returning with malaria infection has increased over the past few decades. Thus, US health care workers need to maintain expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of this infection. Summary: The best practices for treatment and prevention of malaria need to be continually updated based on emerging data. Here, we present an update on the recent literature on malaria epidemiology, drug resistance, severe disease, and prevention strategies.
