Abstract With the globalization of markets, an ever increasing number of companies need to send their employees abroad for short or long periods, often to parts of the world with serious health risks. In such cases, the occupational physician is often consulted for the prevention of travel-linked diseases. His or her role is to inform and advise the employee about to embark on a trip, depending on the risks linked to the assignment (destination country, living conditions, length of stay). The occupational physician has access to numerous sources of information, in particular the medical press, information systems and the Internet.
