Travel Med Infect Dis. 2011 May; 9(3):135-41.TM

Abstract

The Special Olympics is a non-profit organization that was officially founded in 1968. Nowadays, the Special Olympics have evolved to a Global Movement that offers the opportunity to more than 3 million athletes with mental or physical disabilities from 185 countries to participate. The Special Olympics will take place in Greece from June 25 until July 4, 2011, where 7500 athletes from 185 countries will participate in 22 Olympic-type games. Mass gatherings such as Olympic Games represent a significant challenge for public health. This paper focuses on relevant health and safety issues for all travellers travelling to Greece for the summer 2011 Special Olympic Games.
