What Navy instruction covers MALARIA PREVENTION AND CONTROL?
NAVMEDCOM INSTRUCTION 6230.2
How do you report suspected or confirmed malaria cases? What should be included in the report?
Use the DISEASE ALERT REPORT.

A military DAR should include the patient's itinerary during the previous 3 months and the types and duration of any chemoprophylaxis or treatment medications taken.
Before being eligible to donate blood, individuals treated for Malaria must wait how many years from the date treatment was finished?
3 years
(Individuals who were in malaria-risk areas and were required to take chemoprophylaxis because of a perceived risk of exposure, must also wait 3 years from the time chemoprophylaxis was finished)
When donating blood, individuals who visited a malaria-risk area and remained asymtomatic, but were not required to take chemoprophylaxis because of negligible risk of exposure, must wait how long before donating?
6 months
When donating blood, individuals who were placed on chemoprophylaxis because of intended travel into a malaria-risk area, but did not visit the area subsequently (and stopped chemoprophylaxis), must wait how long before donating?
These individuals have no required waiting period.
It is important that what test be documented in all Navy, Marine Corps, and MSC personnel's medical record before visiting or deploying to a malaria-risk area?
G-6-PD test results
Any person who is G-6-PD deficient has a risk of hemolysis associated with taking what drug for chemoprophylaxis or treatment?
Primaquine

(G-6-PD deficient individuals must be identified because they may need special chemoprophylaxis and treatment protocols)
On an individual basis, what is the most important means for an individual to prevent becoming infected with malaria?
Using PERSONAL PROTECTIVE MEASURES

(More so than chemoprophylaxis)
Although CHLOROQUINE and PRIMAQUINE are traditionally used for malaria chemoprophylaxis, patterns of resistance and drug requirements can change frequently. Therefore, who should the MDR of fleet units deploying to malaria-risk areas contact prior to deployment?
The NAVENPVNTMEDU (cognivent for the homeport area)

You want to find out about the latest malaria information and requirements.
What test performs a screening for the presence of chloroquine in the urine?
Wilson-Edeson Test
The Wilson-Edeson Test has an approximately what percent false negative rate?
15%

This means that a negative test cannot be used to "prove" an individual member has not been taking chloroquine.
