Over 80 million people travel annually from developed to developing countries, illustrating the human appetite for exploration and adventure. While travel can bring many novel experiences, it can also be a risk for contracting illness and disease. Most will take the time to construct an elaborate travel itinerary, but few take the time to seek pre-travel health advice. As demonstrated by a recent outbreak of 29 cases of acute hepatitis A in Tulum, Mexico (a very popular resort location). In the reported outbreak none of the patients had received pre-travel vaccination.
One of the main reasons why people don’t seek pre-travel advice is due to accessibility. It is difficult to find knowledgeable travel health providers in a convenient location. Designated “Travel clinics” can be difficult to access, due to either location or availability.
