Proguanil 200mg daily and chloroquine base 300mg weekly along with maloprim 1 tablet weekly was used as malaria chemoprophylaxis for 140 Hong Kong based soliders on a seven-week jungle exercise in a holoendemic malarial area of Papua New Guinea. On return from exercise all personnel were treated with primaquine 7.5mg three times daily for a two week period. One solider developed P. falciparum on the exercise whilst taking chemoprophylaxis and four subsequently developed P. vivax malaria after cessation of chemoprophylaxis.
