Abstract

In this chapter, we provide some useful resources that can be used by those providing travel medicine advice. We divide these into general guidelines available in printed or web-based formats, subscription-based services, textbooks, medical journals, websites for regional advice, and resources that include up-to-date surveillance and outbreak information. We also provide some resources that may be useful for travellers themselves.
