If you are travelling abroad and you need malaria tablets, you can request this online from ZAVA without seeing a doctor face to face.

  1. Tell us about your travel plans and medical history, and select your preferred treatment.
  2. A doctor will review your answers and prescribe treatment if this is right for you.
  3. Your treatment will be posted to you or you can collect this from your nearest Post Office.

If your preferred treatment isn’t suitable, our doctors may suggest an alternative treatment or give further advice.

You cannot request malaria tablets for someone else. Each adult (18 years old or above) who requires medication will need to create their own ZAVA account and do this themselves.
