Abstract

Travelers returning to their country of origin are at increased risk of travel-associated morbidity and mortality. There are many barriers that these VFR travelers encounter in obtaining adequate pretravel care. There are several simple steps that travel clinics and individual providers can take to increase access and effectiveness of pretravel advice in this population. Development of guidelines and research into this high-risk population are desperately needed.
