Maximize your health before traveling
You want to ensure that you are in the best of health before traveling internationally. No one wants to get sick abroad. Keeping abreast of your current health and risk for potential medical ailments is important for all travelers. It is important for specific high-risk groups such as senior citizens, pregnant women, and those with underlying health issues. Travelers who plan to stay abroad for six months or longer should also have a comprehensive health examination before they travel.
