“The travel medicine community is vital to the detection of and response to emerging infectious diseases. We’ve seen many occasions where those in travel medicine have detected outbreaks even before national surveillance systems raised an alert. Also, travel medicine specialists in many countries are the only ones focusing on the immunization of adults. By doing so, they are helping to prevent the re-emergence of various infections, such as diphtheria and polio.”
