Q & A

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection. It is caused by a bacteria known as Chlamydia Trachomatis. In females, this condition usually affects the cervix and the womb. Whereas in men, it affects the pipe through which urine passes in the penis (urethra). Chlamydia can also infect the eye and lungs. However, it is a treatable condition. It is predicted that approximately 10% of all those under the age of 25 will be infected. It is highly recommended that if you are 24 years of age or below and are sexually active, you should test yourself yearly (or more frequently if you feel the need) or every time you have a new sexual partner. You can also contract Chlamydia if you come in contact with the semen or the vaginal fluid of the infected person.


Doxycycline is an antibiotic medicine. It is used for bacterial infections such as Chlamydia. This medicine can be considered as an alternative to the antibiotic azithromycin. The only difference is that the latter is to be taken as a single dose, whereas, Doxycycline is prescribed twice daily. It can provide strong protection against sexually transmitted infections. Doxycycline is available in capsules, dispersible tablets, and oral-liquid medicines.

Is malaria a contagious disease?

It is not spread from person to person. For example, you cannot get malaria from simply coming into contact with someone who is infected.


How is malaria transmitted?

Malaria will typically be transmitted through the bite of an anopheline mosquito which is carrying the infection. The only other means of transmission is through blood transfusion. In cases of congenital malaria, the infection can be transmitted from a pregnant mother to their child prior to/during birth.


Is there a cure for malaria?

There are ongoing studies around the world, testing various different methods and approaches. However, none are expected to be widely available anytime soon. If you treat the disease effectively and hastily, it will potentially be able to be cured.


Who is most at risk of falling ill and dying from malaria?

Those at highest risk of becoming seriously ill and dying from malaria are children, pregnant women, and travellers who have never previously been exposed to the infection. The most affected group for deaths would be children below the age of 5 who live in Sub-Saharan Africa.
