What is travel medicine?

It's a medical specialty that focuses on illnesses and ailments that can be acquired while traveling. Travelers traveling across various nations and remote locations should be aware of the risk of contracting illnesses and injuries that are not prevalent in their own country or region. Before traveling to different regions across your continent and globally, vaccinations, preventative drugs, and basic measures should be addressed. Travel medicine addresses these concerns effectively.
