Swiss research conducted on 100,000 travellers proved that the diseases and ailments that these travellers contracted were predominantly diseases for which no medical preventative measures existed. Which means that no preventative medicine such as vaccines or prophylactics exists for more than 85% of the diseases travellers may encounter during their travels.
This in turn implies that the only way to protect travellers from health risks in foreign countries is through education.
WTMC provides travel health education during consultation with every traveller visiting any of our network partner clinics. Although one-on-one contact is the most preferred method of communication we have vast experience in delivering the “Healthy Traveller” message as presentation to larger travel groups, organisational departments, company executives and to other role payers in the travel market.
