As greater numbers of people travel to even more exotic and remote destinations – an estimated 600 million travellers cross international borders annually – the field of travel medicine has grown.
Some studies suggest that only in the region of eight percent of travellers seek pre-travel risk advice.

In recent years the complexity of travel medicine has increased rapidly; with variations in patterns of drug resistance, changes in global infectious disease distribution, as well as a rise in the number of travellers with chronic health issues.
Travel medicine, as a field, encompasses a large number of disciples including public and occupational health, epidemiology, infectious disease and tropical disease among others. As an individual, and growing, speciality standards of practice have been established to identify the scope of competencies expected from travel health medicine practitioners, to guide their professional training and development, while ensuring an acceptable level of patient care is reached.
