Antimicrobial prevention and therapy for travelers' infection.
Expert Rev Anti Infect Ther. 2007 Dec; 5(6):1031-48.ER

Abstract

International journeys are increasing and more than 70 million people from industrialized countries cross the borders of tropical countries every year. More than 50% of them will suffer from some form of infectious illness, ranging from mild travelers' diarrhea to severe dengue fever to fatal malaria, with a wide spectrum of microbiological entities. Travel-related respiratory infections, including TB, and sexually transmitted infections are also increasingly reported. Awareness of travel-related risk is not always adequate among international travelers. Specific training on travel medicine-related issues, as well as better diagnostic facilities for imported diseases, is crucial for physicians and nurses in industrialized countries.
