Abstract

Visiting a grandparent for a first time, exploring the ruins of an ancient civilization in a distant country, or river rafting through a tropical jungle are all moments that are never forgotten. Illness, visits to the doctor, and disability should not be a part of these experiences. Diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, travelers' diarrhea, and hepatitis A are preventable. Through the use of vaccines, prophylactic medications, and disease-prevention education, clinicians may help ensure their pediatric patients have enjoyable and rewarding travel experiences.
