Whether travelling for business, adventure or relaxation, a good trip always involves careful planning.
It is important to protect your health while abroad, especially if spending time in areas that pose risk of certain diseases. We would recommend that you start planning your travel health at least 3 months in advance. It is possible that you may need travel vaccinations or malaria tablets.
