Purchase your medication online and help Gambian schools
You can order your malaria medication online direct from Lloyds Pharmacy and they will deliver to your pharmacy the same day, or direct to your home the very next day.
For every order made we will make an 8% donation to our Gambian School Development Fund.
On the Lloyds Pharmacy website, under Travel clinic in the main menu bar, choose Malaria tablets.
Senegal is just one of many countries where the risk of contracting malaria is very real but this is an avoidable illness provided adequate precautions are taken. It is also advisable to use an effective insect repellent to avoid being bitten and to continue taking the tablets throughout your stay and after your return to the UK.
Children and pregnant women may require special vaccination procedures.
We would also advise that you take with you medicines for dehydration, small ailments, stomach upsets, insect bites and cuts, along with high factor sun creams.
Sexually transmitted diseases (including Aids) are a serious threat to health throughout the world. Please exercise caution when on holiday.
