What is the WPBTS policy regarding malaria and malaria areas?

If you have visited a malaria area, you will only be able to donate blood four weeks after leaving that area. Also, if you have any symptoms suggestive of malaria infection, you cannot donate blood for three months after the start of those symptoms. If you have been diagnosed with malaria, you will not be able to donate blood for three years from the time of complete treatment and recovery.
