Information is not readily available for the numbers prescribed malarone, doxycycline or lariam. Patient medical records are confidential and access to prescription information is restricted to medical professionals. Collation of information regarding individual prescriptions would require all Medical Officers in the Defence Forces to examine each medical record for patients treated in the periods in question and is unfeasible.
