How to Prevent or Manage Sickness When You’re Traveling Internationally

Basic preparations can help you deal with sickness while traveling. These preparations fall into three categories: risk assessment, preparation and prevention.

Here are some questions you can ask yourself: Is there any kind of unrest in the country you’re visiting? If so, what’s your risk in going to that country?  What inoculations do you need? If you have them already, are they still valid? What medicines should take with you? Do you have insurance to cover transportation home in case you get seriously ill or have an accident?

The links below provide resources that provide answers to these and many other questions so you can travel with the least possible disruption to your vacation or business.

Whatever your travel goals, there are resources that can help you prepare to reach them with as little disruption as possible
