Who is traveldoctoronline?
Traveldoctoronline is a partnership of senior medical specialists who has extensive experience of practising medicine globally. Our principle aim is to prevent travellers health problems before they occur by informing you how to avoid health risks during travelling and how to take appropiate action accordingly. We are independent of economic as well as political interest.
Western Europeans take for granted an excellent health care system in function 24 hours 365 days a year are in place. We are also used to a high standard of public hygiene which is not the case in less developed countries. Diseases regarded relatively harmless in our part of the world can for travellers to remote sites become potentially lethal.
In fact, if something goes wrong on your trip healthwise, the traveler can be in for a nightmare.
The cost of medical evacuation of a sick or injured person is extremely high. If you are travelling for yourself, rather than business, you may not be able to afford the cost to evacuate yourself to an area with high quality health care.
The objective, consequently, with your travel is to:
- Educate yourself about health risk in the country you are visiting. What are common diseases? What insects are there and what would happen if you were bitten? How can you protect yourself from insect bites?
- Immunize yourself to those diseases found in that country.
- Have fun while visiting your destination, but be cautious. The last thing you want is to be in need of medical care in a foreign country.
Traveldoctoronline helps you preparing your travel abroad and is updates with the current diseases and outbreaks in various areas of the world
