OUP publishes advice from the CDC on travel and disease
Date:5/9/2013

Health risks are real and ever-changing, especially while traveling abroad. The bird flu, for example, has been in the news recently for taking four more lives, bringing the total deaths to 31. To stay abreast of up-to-date health recommendations, experienced travelers and health care professionals have always relied on CDC's user-friendly Health Information for International Travel (commonly known as the The Yellow Book) as their one indispensable guide. Updated biennially by a team of almost two hundred experts-including both CDC staff and travel medicine expertsthis book is the only publication that contains all of the official government recommendations for international travel.

In the OUP blog this week, Megan Crawley O'Sullivan, of the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases at the CDC, discusses the CDC'S advice on travel to China and H7N9 (bird flu). The Yellow Book goes into further detail regarding country-specific information, easy-to-read disease risk maps, information on where to find health care during travel, advice for those traveling with infants and children, a comprehensive catalog of diseases, and detailed country-specific health warnings. Clearly written with full-color illustrations, The Yellow Book returns to provide practical as well as high-level medical advice.
