What can be used or eaten to treat malaria?
There are many drugs which can be used to treat malaria. Of these, the World Health Organization recommends artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) to be used as first-line treatment against uncomplicated, non-severe malaria, and intravenous artesunate as the first-line therapy against severe or complicated malaria. More detailed information about the range of medications which can be used, some against specific kinds of malaria and some in specific areas of the world, can be found on our page relating to malaria treatment, which can be accessed via this link:Malaria Treatments.
