Diseases, accidents and injuries among travelers in Poland.
Int Marit Health. 2000; 51(1-4):62-72.IM

Abstract

A survey was conducted among a group of people who traveled from Poland abroad, and who were insured before leaving the country, and in case of illness or injury claimed the costs of treatment providing medical documentation. The risk of disease and injury among these travelers was estimated. Among 336,254 travelers, there were 2,411 cases of disease and 789 cases of injury, during their mean period of travels and stay abroad of about 3 weeks (20,63 days). In the surveyed group, there were 24 cases of fatal disease and 7 cases of fatal injuries recorded. The incidence per 100,000 was calculated.
