This updated and redesigned pocket-sized guide to traveller's health anywhere in the world contains advice from expert doctors and seasoned travellers.

Using simple language, the book's coverage is global to suit all destinations and activities, whether mainstream or adventurous. Health profiles of every country in the world are detailed - vaccinations required, the best hospitals, health risks and safety issues. Foreign diseases are covered, and how to recognize and treat them. Survival advice is provided for emergency conditions - in jungle, desert, extreme cold or at sea - as well as answers to common questions about food hygiene, health insurance, jetlag and medical kits. Contributors include: Sharon Welby, a lecturer in travel medicine; Saye Khoo, an Everest expedition medical advisor; John Blashford-Snell, founder of Operation Raleigh and expedition leader; Mike Stroud, medical advisor on Ranulph Fiennes' expeditions; Robin Hanbury-Tenison, explorer and broadcaster; and Hilary Bradt, founder of Bradt Travel Guides.
