The prevention of common illnesses in travelers is an important aspect of travel medicine. However, the environment can also pose particular concerns for the traveler and, unless simple precautions are taken, can result in significant illness or injury. The environment has a number of potential hazards for travelers, including accidents and injuries, as well as muggings and assaults. Accidents and injuries are the single biggest cause of death when traveling abroad and hence an important area of preventive medicine to address for travelers.
