The Dangers of Infections During Travel

Dr. John Cahill discusses about how traveling abroad has become very easy - it's relatively cheap, readily available, enjoyable, and a click away on the internet. But many people don't seem to realize there are health risks involved when traveling, particularly when traveling to the developing world or to the tropics. Travelers need to think about being vaccinated for diseases that might not occur in the United States.

Some examples would be Hepatitis A, Yellow Fever, Typhoid Fever, Rabies - there's numerous diseases that people should be aware of and possibly vaccinated for if they are planning to travel. If there is no immunity and a traveler is exposed to some of these viruses, then you have a possibly life threatening illness.

 Dr. John D. Cahill, M.D. is a physician and medical educator who founded the Center for Global Collaboration & Health Initiatives. While studying abroad in medical school and after his postgraduate medical training at Brown University, Dr. Cahill spent time in Southeast Asia & Africa.
