[Extract] One of the biggest problems for health professionals and the travel industry has been getting travelers to present for pretravel health advice from a qualified source. Behrens1 stated that one of the most important factors in whether travelers seek health advice at all was the perceived risk and severity of tropical diseases. Travelers may obtain this health advice from the travel industry itself, or from health professionals in travel clinics, hospitals, public health units, general practices or other centers. They may also obtain advice by telephone directly from these areas. It is likely however that travel agents and the travel industry, especially various publications, are an important source of preliminary information on health and safety for travelers.
