Título Risk and burden associated with the acquisition of viral hepatitis A and B in the corporate traveler
Información bibliográfica Aug 2008, Vol.50, No.8, p.935-944. Illus. 74 ref.
Resumen As the number of international business travellers continues to grow, so does the list of destinations, many of which are endemic for hepatitis A and B. For employers, infected employees can result in increased health care costs and reduced productivity. Safe and efficacious vaccines are available. Well-designed immunization plans organized within the enterprise health system can prevent hepatitis A and B when employees are abroad on business. This article discusses the risks, costs and prevention of hepatitis A and B for international business travellers.
