More and more people are travelling regionally and internationally for various reasons – tourism, visiting friends and relatives, adventure, education, volunteer or aid work.
Travel health risks will vary between individuals, and several factors need to be taken into consideration, such as the itinerary, trip duration, travel style, activities and health background of the traveller. Travel health means making sure travellers are best prepared for preventing or managing illness and accidents while they are away from home.
It may include the following;
- Ensuring a traveller understands the various health risks at their destination and knows how to avoid or minimalise risk.
- Being protected through vaccinations or using special medications to avoid disease.
- Having travel insurance.
It is recommended that you consult with your General Practitioner at least 6-8 weeks in advance as some of the immunizations may require a course of injections. If however this time frame is not possible, remember,
‘its never too late to vaccinate’.
Pre-Travel Consultation & Vaccination
The pre-travel consultation offers a dedicated time to prepare travellers for the health concerns that might arise during their trips. The objectives of the pre-travel consultation are to assess the traveller’s trip plans and determine potential health hazards; to educate the traveller regarding the anticipated risks and methods for prevention; to provide immunizations for vaccine-preventable diseases and medications for prophylaxis, self-treatment, or both; and to empower the traveller to manage his or her health throughout the trip.
