on the Uganda forum:
Hi all, I've (seemingly) received some good advice here before so I'm going back to the well for some more important help.
I'm in the midst of talking to people closer to the situation and my doctor, but I need some insight on Malaria.
I'm an American - White as can be and ripe for the mosquitos. And I will be in Uganda as of early January. My plan will be to stay there for several years and my stay will definitely be no shorter than 7 months as I'm working as a teacher at AVRS School (about 20 km West of Kampala).
I just had a script written for 8 months of Malaria pills, which will run me $1300. I'm a recent college grad on a budget. I could pay it to save my life, but I'm wondering how much of my life $1300 is worth. I've read (and heard) that the mosquitos are awfully bad as the sun sets. But this is what I want to hear more about from people who have some experience outside of the city.
Is it reasonable to avoid contracting Malaria by wearing long sleeves and avoiding the outside when the sun sets? I'm looking for some type of compromise...maybe I take precautions most days and buy fewer pills for longer nights. Really, I'm just stubborn, but also don't want to be stupid.
What can anyone who lives in Uganda tell me about this situation? If you're a Westerner, even better. Thanks so much!
