Publisher Comments:

Health is a major concern for most travellers. Not only do travellers need to know what precautions to take to avoid becoming ill on the road, they need to know what steps to take if they do become ill or have an accident. Lonely Planet's new Healthy Travel guides provide the practical advice and reassurance travellers are looking for. Designed to accompany Lonely Planet guidebooks, the Healthy Travel guides provide readers with much more than just the basics. With a clear, user-friendly design, augmented by simple, easy to follow diagrams and tables, they are packed with answers to all the common health questions travellers ask.<P>Different areas of the world have different health risks. Healthy Travel guides are tailored to the four regions of the world with the highest health risks for travellers: Asia and India; Africa; Central and South America; and Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.<P>The emphasis throughout the series is on practicality. Because travellers get common ailments as well as exotic diseases, a wide range of problems is covered, from how to deal with fever to basic first aid for cuts and sprains, managing a nose bleed and what to do if you think you have malaria. They also provide clear guidance on when travellers need to seek medical help and how to go about it and offer essential information on women's health concerns.<P>Written by Dr Isabelle Young, who has travelled widely and lived to tell the tale, and approved by specialist travel health experts, these books are just what the doctor ordered. It's not worth the risk of travelling without one.
