Malaria is a tropical disease passed on to humans by mosquitoes and is currently virulent in 100 countries over the world. Malaria is one of the leading causes of disease and death in the world. It is estimated that there are 300 to 500 million new cases every year, with 1.5 to 2.7 million deaths worldwide. Malaria occurs extensively in tropical and subtropical regions.
All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential (we do not inform your GP). You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of lengthy doctor waiting rooms.

Malaria kills a child somewhere in the world every 30 seconds. With this in mind Anytime Doctor will donate £1 to UNICEF for every antimalarial service purchased by patients. This means you can help save lives by purchasing your antimalarials through Anytime Doctor.

Why are there no prices shown for the Anytime Doctor treatment services?At Anytime Doctor, we aim to offer you similar pattern of healthcare as if you were to visit your normal GP for a face to face consultation. We believe it is important that you complete a medical consultation and receive a diagnosis by a licensed doctor before you are offered treatment options. Once a doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your registration and medical consultation is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment after your consultation.
Which antimalarial tablet do I need?After your medical consultation a doctor will recommend the antimalarials which are safe for you take. If all three prescription-only medicines are recommended your choice comes down to personal preference such as cost and the number of tablets you need to take for your trip.
