Medglobal advice and recommendations:

Due the ever increasing diseases globally one should consult a medical practitioner well in advance of any major travel to places where such diseases are known to exist. If possible up to 6 months prior to departure is a good time to start planning for vaccinations. The vaccinations of today are readily available, they are safe and give a good protection against many deadly diseases. It is not in vain that the vaccinations have been developed, no one is immune to the major global killer diseases! It is a healthy aspect to be very aware of what might happen in the country/region one is about to enter as a tourist or business traveler.

General Recommendations:

Wash your hands often and regularly!
Wash hands often with soap and water often!
Because motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of injury among travelers, walk and drive defensively.
Avoid travel at night if possible and always use seat belts.
Always use latex condoms to reduce the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
All travelers should take the following precautions, no matter the destination:
Don’t eat or drink dairy products unless you know they have been pasteurized.
Don’t share needles with anyone.
Never eat undercooked ground beef and poultry, raw eggs, and unpasteurized dairy products.
Don’t share needles with anyone.
Raw shellfish is particularly dangerous to persons who have liver disease or compromised immune systems.


Travelers to rural or undeveloped areas should take the following precautions:
Wash your hands often and regularly!
Drink only bottled or boiled water, or carbonated (bubbly) drinks in cans or bottles.
Avoid tap water, fountain drinks, and ice cubes.
If this is not possible, make water safer by BOTH filtering through an “absolute 1-micron or less” filter AND adding iodine tablets to the filtered water
“Absolute 1-micron filters” are found in camping/outdoor supply stores.
Eat only thoroughly cooked food or fruits and vegetables you have peeled yourself.
Remember: boil it, heat it hot, peel it, or forget it.
Protect yourself from insects by remaining in well-screened areas, using repellents (applied sparingly at 4-hour intervals), and wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into boots or socks as a deterrent to ticks.
To prevent fungal and parasitic infections, keep feet clean and dry, and do not go barefoot. (info by CDC)
