Background: Despite the substantial progress over the time, malaria remains a major public
health concern and causing hundreds of thousands of deaths. Resistance to the available antimalarial
therapy increases threat to the global public health.
Objective: Overview of currently available antimalarials.
Method: Literary survey.
Results: The summarized data about different types of antimalarial therapies and their efficiency and
modes of action.
Conclusion: Despite the seemingly large number of the drugs currently available for malaria treatment,
this arsenal is limited due to the narrow variation of their mechanism of action.
