Resumen Malaria continues to be a significant, life-threatening illness in many parts of the world. For corporate travellers from countries with low endemicity, the risk of infection is considerable. Many corporate travellers are unaware of their risk, unsure of the correct preventative measures and receive incorrect advice regarding prevention or do not comply with advice they have received. This review addresses the risk of malaria to the non-immune corporate traveller, disease transmission, and recommended means of prevention, including the protection against mosquito bites and anti-malaria chemoprophylaxis.
