A2Malaria is transmitted from person mainly through mosquito (if you live in areas where it's common, see here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaria) or through blood products (e.g. receiving blood donation from someone who suffers from malaria). Thus, regardless of the treatment status, malaria areas in which it's not common don't pass from person to person.
