Travel with children is increasingly common, as the frequency and range of family holidays expand exponentially and many more European citizens take young children to visit families of origin overseas. This overview describes the commonest hazards encountered and provides information gathered from many sources (including expatriate and travelling families) for those advising such travellers on how to minimize the risk to their children. Emphasis is placed throughout on prevention through awareness, immunization, and prophylaxis. Particularly high-risk situations are considered (both in terms of host and environment) and, where appropriate, lines are drawn as to the advisability of taking young or high-risk children to hostile environments. The chapter closes with some practical advice on what to take and when to go.
