Summary

Almost 940 million international journeys were undertaken in 2010. Global travel on this scale exposes many people to a range of health risks - different disease agents and changes in temperature, altitude and humidity are just some of these risks - all of which can lead to ill-health. Many of these risks, however, can be minimized by precautions taken before, during and after travel.
