More and more people are travelling internationally than ever before, be it going on foreign holidays or travelling for business. Many destinations have health risks for travellers. Travellers will wish to remain well and illness free on their overseas trips.
Though travel may bring opportunity and excitement however, it could also bring disease or illness. It is important to remember that some types of international travel, especially to developing countries and rural areas, have higher health risks.
These risks depend on a number of factors, including:
- Activities while Travelling
- Current Health Status
- Vaccination History
We offer expert medical advice to help to ensure that the traveller gets the most out of his/her holiday or business trip. A lot of illnesses can be anticipated and prevented with appropriate information, advice and vaccination.
