Health care of the international traveler

Ann Tseng, Timothy Herrick

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The number of travelers crossing borders each year continues to rise. According to the World Tourism Organization, the number of travelers crossing international borders is set to exceed 1.1 billion by the end of 2014 [1]. Currently, fewer than half of all international travelers seek a travel consultation prior to departure [2]. A basic understanding of traveler’s health is necessary to provide travel advice to patients, as family physicians often bridge the gap between knowledge of a patient’s health history and travel medicine. In a recent study, primary care providers were second only to the Internet in patient-identified sources of travel health advice [2].
