International travel and health, 2008

International Travel Health publication (2007)

This edition of International travel and health was completely redesigned in 2002 to reflect better knowledge about the risks to which travellers are exposed and the precautions needed to protect their health. With abundant new material and a revised organizational structure, the book offers guidance on the full range of health risks likely to be encountered at specific destinations and associated with different types of travel – from business, humanitarian and leisure travel to backpacking and adventure tours. Information is intended to help the medical profession be fully alert to potential risks and provide appropriate advice, whether concerning recommended vaccinations, protection against insects and other disease vectors, or safety in different environmental settings.
