Description :
The Little Book aims to give the traveller targeted information about travel health issues. Tropical diseases are explained in simple terms. The various protective vaccines are discussed but it is our aim to make sure that the reader understands that travel health is about much more than immunisations. Traveller’s diarrhoea affects between 30 and 50 % of travellers during a two-week stay in a less developed area.  Insect-borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever are still major concerns in many parts of the world. Emerging Infectious Diseases are discussed along with age-old problems such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Accidents are a major cause of death and injury in younger travellers, and yet many still travel uninsured. Challenging activities and environments are addressed. The remote reader is provided with self-help guides and medical-kit suggestions for illness and injury. This Multi-Touch book provides interactivity through galleries of images, review questions, pop-overs, glossary, videos and useful web links. Historical “quirky facts” will, hopefully, be of interest to both young and old readers. Medical Practitioners will also find this a useful educational tool for their patients who come requesting Travel Medicine advice. Those planning a trip often seek medical advice from their travel agents who may find The Little Book a helpful reference point.
