Are there special health requirements when visiting Zimbabwe?

Yes, because Zimbabwe is a malaria area and the use of malaria prophylactics is highly recommended. You will need to take prescription medicine before, during and after your trip to prevent malaria. Your doctor can help you decide when medicine is right for you, and also talk to you about other steps you can take to prevent malaria. However, any person entering Zimbabwe from or via a yellow fever or cholera-infected area must be in possession of a valid International Certificate of Vaccination against yellow fever or cholera.
