The active ingredient in Avloclor tablets is choroquine phosphate.
Hydroxychoroquine is not the same as chloroquine phosphate (avloclor)
Do not substitute avloclor for hydroxychloroquine without checking with your doctor first.
Hydroxychloroquine is used to prevent certain strains of malaria.
It will depend on what country you are in as to whether its use is recommended as a substitute.
