Travel health update for Dr. Ed on 3rd November 2016

HELLO - this page is just for you!  The content below will be available to you until the end of 2016, but please note, while it was up to date at the time of the travel health update you attended,  some items may move after this time and I don't monitor keeping this individual page up to date.  After the page is taken 'down' , all other pages on the website will still be available and I try hard to keep them updated.  

Over the years, I've enjoyed designing 'tools' and resources for health care professionals to use in their daily practice - created to make the process easier for you.   When using tools such as vaccine and malaria charts, advice leaflets etc. make sure though that you are always using the latest version. I would ask you to read the copyright and disclaimer statements please.

Resources presented mostly in order of presentation - I may have included some items below I didn't discuss on the day!
