Abstract

Patients who travel to developing nations are those most likely to encounter parasitic diseases. Using a risk assessment approach and the resources introduced in this article, the primary care physician can prepare them for travel and continue their care on return. Immunizations and patient education are the major modes of prevention, coupled with chemoprophylaxis for malaria and traveler's diarrhea. Traveling pregnant women and young children need special precautions. A large body of preventive and therapeutic knowledge, including parasitology, is at the core of emporiatrics, the science of travel medicine.
