The need for global healthcare has skyrocketed in recent years. At least 1.3 billion people worldwide lack access to the most basic healthcare. Many of them are compelled to travel to other areas or countries to receive healthcare. According to the Census Bureau's 2005 Current Population Survey (CPS), there were 45.8 million uninsured individuals in the United States. Across Europe, many patients participating in the national healthcare system are facing delays in receiving treatment.
Our aim is to advise travellers about health risks, the geographical distribution of diseases worldwide, immunization requirements for all countries, and to make competent medical care available to travellers by western-trained doctors who speak English.
