About the book
According to the United Nations, World Tourism Organization the international arrivals across boundaries surpassed the 1 billion mark for the first time in history. This massive number of travelers include all categories including tourists, business peoples, and immigrants. Unfortunately, travel can also lead to health problems that may range from unpleasant to life-threatening illnesses. It is estimated that fewer than half of the travelers do not seek proper pretravel advice and who get the recommendations at times, is either uninformed or outdated. Similarly, the people returning to their country of origin less likely consult a physician before or after traveling and preventable systemic illness, as well as infectious disease propagation, is seen more commonly in this group of travelers than others. This book pragmatically overviews the prevention and treatment strategies of all travel-related illnesses. The book also highlights the accurate advice as well as the recommendations of all primary care physicians about both pretravel preparation and how to deal with illnesses contracted abroad. The book will discuss the priorities to establish where active immunization is not possible sometimes against infectious and contagious illnesses in travelers. The key components of a travel guide to patients wishing to be prepared for illnesses and emergencies related to travel would also be enumerated in this book.
