Health in Madagascar 

No vaccination is required from travellers, except for yellow fever and cholera if you have come from or passed through an infected area. However, everyone had better take preventive measures against malaria, hepatitis (an injection of gammaglobuline) and vaccines against cholera and yellow fever. 


Bilharzia (schistosomiasis) is common but can be avoided by steering clear of swimming in fresh water. Swimming pools which are well-chlorinated and maintained are safe.
