The role of the traveler in emerging infections and magnitude of travel.
Med Clin North Am. 2008 Nov; 92(6):1409-32, xi.MC

Abstract

Travel and trade have grown immensely. Travelers interact with people and microbes during their journeys, and can introduce infectious agents to new areas and populations. Studying illnesses in travelers is a source of knowledge into diseases of resource-poor regions and the control of these diseases. Travel-associated illnesses also serve to detect emerging infections.
