Travel medicine health tips

The world is becoming more globalised, with the number of people traveling each year on the rise. US residents are taking nearly two billion leisure trips and almost 500 million business trips (2016), with UK residents making 70.8 million visits overseas last year (2016), an 8% increase to the previous year (2015).

With travel visits increasing year on year on a worldwide scale, it is no wonder travel medicine is an area also growing quickly to match activity and demand.

So, what are some of best and useful travel health tips for those traveling?

We asked a number of experts committed to the promotion of healthy and safe travel, from physicians, nurses, and pharmacists, to public health officials at The 15th Conference of the International Society of Travel Medicine (CISTM15) this year, what their top travel health tips were.
