The purpose of this document is to provide comprehensible, global, evidence based guidelines to help formulate policies and protocols for the treatment of malaria. Information is presented on the treatment of: uncomplicated malaria, including disease in special groups (young children, pregnant women, people who are HIV-positive, travellers from non-malaria endemic regions) and in epidemics and complex emergency situations; and severe malaria. The guidelines do not deal with preventive uses of antimalarials, such as intermittent preventive treatment or chemoprophylaxis.
