Use of deltaprim to fight against malaria

I am living in Zambia for the year in the South Luangwa National park and malaria is common. The full time staff here don t use any anti-malarial medication due to the long term affects. Here i will be using deltaprim, i am currently not using anything as im here for a long time. Should i use deltaprim or just fight off malaria as the other long term staff do?
