Jacqueline Pye Paediatric nurse specialist, Complete Healthcare International Pte Ltd, Singapore

All practitioners who come into contact with infants and children, whether in designated travel clinics or general practice settings, need to be aware of travel-related concerns. This article addresses the importance of travel-related health and safety for children and the provision of appropriate advice to parents and guardians.
