SAFE Quality Travel Health Services

This site is intended for anyone wishing to learn about the health risks that may be encountered when travelling, and to find out how to minimize or manage those risks.

The information contained in this site is not meant to scare the prospective traveller – that's you! Rather, it is to inform you. I believe that the informed traveller will remain a healthier traveller, and will also be in a better position to make educated decisions when necessary. For when we fall ill abroad, we may be subject to poor medical care in a language we do not understand. As well, you will be constantly bombarded with anecdotal medical opinions, especially about malaria. Some of what you hear will be incorrect, and at times dangerous! There are lots of excellent links throughout the site, so anything you need to know should literally be at your fingertips.

Pre-trip Consultations

After gathering all the relevant information the travel medicine physician will recommend a plan of treatment aimed to protect you during your travels. The types of immunizations and other protective measures can vary depending on your travel plans and your particular risk level. We attempt to tailor our advice to your particular needs and risk. Consultations will cover all relevant topics including:

  • Immunizations
  • Detailed travel medicine reports for each country visited.
    • Advice on health concerns endemic to countries visited.
    • Detailed prevention strategies for:
      • Insect-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue fever and Japanese encephalitis.
      • Food and water-borne illness such as traveler's diarrhea and schistosomiasis.
      • High altitude sickness.
    • Specific traveler related issues including pregnant travelers, travel with children, solo travelers and female travelers.
  • TB testing if applicable.


*Note: Pre-Travel medicine advice is not an Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) benefit. The cost per person varies, mostly because the requirements for vaccination depend on the destination.


Post-trip Consultations

Many illnesses may only manifest after your return to Canada. Screening for certain illnesses such as tuberculosis or intestinal parasites can save you from more serious problems later on. We can provide for the treatment of post travel-related diseases or arrange for timely consultations to specialized units if needed.

On return and as required, travelers can access post-travel medical services as follows:
Patients returning with a travel-related illness do not need a referral to visit, but an appointment is required. These visits are covered by OHIP. Due to the nature of some travel-related illnesses, a same day consultation can be arranged.
