Abstract

Travel and public health are inextricably linked: international travellers not only have a higher and well-recognized risk of illness and injury but also have the potential to either import non-endemic diseases into their country of origin or export non-endemic diseases to the country they visit. In 2003, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) showed us how easily an outbreak could spread, and in this highly mobile world with its increasing pace and scale of travel, the interface between travel medicine and public health has never been more important.
