One is never really prepared for a mishap or an illness overseas, and whenever such an eventuality occurs one is faced with the problem of accessing the best local treatment. The travel health provider at home should always advise the traveller about the need to check out travel insurance and local medical facilities in the destination before travel, especially in the case of long-term or high-risk travellers. In addition, the traveller should be given a contact number for the clinic in his or her home country and be instructed to use this contact whenever necessary.
