Food and Waterborne Diseases

Sampling local cuisine is one of the highlights of international travel, making food and waterborne diseases the most commonly acquired illnesses in travellers. Most food and water borne illnesses arise from contamination during food preparation, or from contaminated water sources. With an increase in the global incidence of gastrointestinal illnesses, practicing safe eating and drinking habits are essential in minimising your risk of contracting food and waterborne diseases while travelling. Immunisation can also help reduce risk of diseases like hepatitis A, typhoid and cholera.
