If there is any bad timing to come down with an illness, it is during a stay abroad. Our health professionals can prescribe the necessary medication for your travel arrangements.

This part of our travel management program complements our travel counseling and vaccination services.

Here are the pre-travel medications that our health professionals are regularly called on to prescribe.

Traveller’s diarrhea

Commonly known as tourista, traveller’s diarrhea occurs as a result of a bacteria, a virus, or sometimes even a parasite.

Although often associated with South America, travellers’ diarrhea also strikes tourists visiting Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

If you’re planning to travel to one or more of these parts of the world, it’s likely that your health professionnal will recommend an antibiotic or Dukoral®.

Available as an oral vaccine, Dukoral® is administered a few weeks before your departure to allow you to fully enjoy your trip.

Home

Malaria

Found across Africa and Asia, but also closer to home in South America, malaria is an infectious disease that can lead to real damage on one’s health.

Since this infectious disease is transmitted more regularly following a mosquito bite, it is imperative that you take all the necessary precautions to keep them away.

In addition, because there are many different strains of malaria, your trip may require you to take one or several anti-malaria medication.

 

Acute mountain sickness

Acute mountain sickness, which can occur during stays at elevated altitudes, may cause symptoms that are severe enough to disrupt the smooth planning of your activities.

Preventive medication is one of the best ways to reduce the impact of the onset of this condition.

Considering, among others, your state of health and the designated destination, it is likely thatt your health professionnal prescribes you preventive medication against acute mountain sickness.

Don’t let preventable diseases disrupt your travels.
