[Extract] The United Nations World Tourism Organisation announced that there were a record 924 million international tourist arrivals in 2008. It is known that many travelers encounter some kind of health and safety problem whilst they are traveling. Travel health advisers are required to discuss the epidemiology, management, and prevention of the gambit of disease and injury hazards that may be confronted by travelers. There is a need to provide written material to travelers to help reinforce this advice, which can be assisted by a range of travel health reference publications available today specifically designed for travelers. The 15th edition of Travelling Well is one of these specialized references and one which has established itself as one of the leading educational aids in travel medicine in Australasia.
