why is it important?
There can be many unknowns when travelling to another country and it’s important to make sure you are medically-equipped so that your body is safe-guarded against diseases, viruses and infections.
It is also a good idea to have a general discussion about your overall health to identify whether you may have issues with long-haul flights, such as deep-vein thrombosis (DVT).
You can also take out the stress of trying to source medications overseas by having your pharmacist provide you with dosages to pack and take with you.
