The ethnic minority traveler.
Infect Dis Clin North Am 1998; 12(2):523-41ID

Abstract

Although the ethnic minority traveler is exposed to the same risks as other travelers, there are special considerations that make them vulnerable to certain diseases. In addition, many ethnic minority travelers are traditionally underserved by the medical community and often travel without the benefit of adequate counseling and immunization. The specific disease entities covered in this article include parasitic diseases (e.g. malaria, trypanosomiasis, intestinal helminths), tuberculosis, and other respiratory diseases, dengue, and sexually transmitted diseases and HIV.
