Before You Go      
 


Trip pre-planning and precautions are very useful before embarking on a trip or journey outside your home. We recommend that you follow some strict rules before traveling to ensure good health during your time away and even when you get back. Some of these include

  1. Making an appointment with your Health Care Provider, if you don’t have one, you are welcome to Contact Us.
  2. Set up immunization for common tropical diseases.
