International travel has increased dramatically. Many travellers now face significant risk due to their destination, itinerary and/or state of health. Subsequently, they sustain a disproportionate degree of illness. Much of this illness is preventable with the help of an expert in Travel and Tropical Medicine.
Travel Medicine is a young discipline that strives to accurately assess and then minimize travel associated risk.
By contrast, the practice of Tropical Medicine is a discipline committed to managing the traveller who has returned ill from a tropical country.
Very few health care workers practice both Travel and Tropical Medicine as we do. When a clinic takes care of ill returned travellers, they are in a strong position to advise those about to leave. This ideal combination is central to providing comprehensive care for all the issues that travellers face.
