Fever in the returned traveller

Fever in the returned traveller - How to prevent?

Infections can be acquired from different sources during travelling. To reduce infection risk, and therefore the incidence of fever occurring in the returned traveller, we recommend the following: 
  • Paying careful attention to food and water safety
  • Frequent handwashing
  • Vaccinations may be offered for the prevention of vaccine preventable diseases if travelling to certain areas; for example Yellow Fever vaccine is indicated for travel to certain parts of Africa. 
  • Protection against mosquitoes, ticks and other arthropods
  • Chemoprophylaxis (for malaria prevention)
  • Safe sex practices
