Título Overview of selected infectious disease risks for the corporate traveler
Información bibliográfica Aug 2008, Vol.50, No.8, p.924-934. Illus. 77 ref.
Resumen International business travel to developing countries has increased considerably over the past two decades. Many of these destinations are endemic to a variety of infectious diseases, some of which are associated with considerable morbidity, mortality, or both. Non-immune travellers are at risk. Comprehensive pre-travel consultation is essential to prevent travel-related illness. This review addresses some of the infectious diseases that can be acquired during international travel, including endemic regions, assessment of risk and available means of prevention.
