malaria?

I will be travelling to Davao in July. Is there any risk of catching malaria in Davao?

Hi, been to Mindanao a few times now and each time my malaria worries are lessened. It seems that Larium prescribed by your doctor is very effective. I've been bitten by mosquitoes in the evening (when the malaria carriers are most prevelent) and have suffered no ill effects. Larium and a high deet bug spray will keep you safe.
