Every year, thousands of Canadians travel out of the country for a variety of reasons, ranging from vacation to business. Leaving the security and familiarity of one’s home country involves certain risks. We are fortunate to live in a peaceful and clean country. With the recent advances in healthcare and disease prevention, Canadians enjoy the best living environment in the world. When one travels out of the country, you are however exposed to different environmental risks including diseases that your body may not have sufficient immunity to deal with.
It’s always disheartening to hear of dream vacations cut short because of preventable illness or a person ending up with life long disease, disability or even death that could have been preventable. Most of these diseases can be prevented with good knowledge of avoiding causative factors and fortunately others with appropriate vaccinations.
Some of these illnesses may not have grave consequences for the person infected but can cause serious illness in people with weak immune systems like the elderly or very young who may come in contact with the travellers.
Almost all cases of Hepatitis A, Typhoid, and Malaria diagnosed in Canada every year are found in travellers returning to Canada.
