Are you fit to fly?



With the advent of affordable air travel, more and more people are travelling to foreign destinations. While the novelty of visiting a new place is exciting, the spread of diseases is something to be aware of as the world becomes smaller and more interconnected.

Now is the information edge and it is not hard to find any data about places that we want to go. When going vacation abroad with whole family, very important to get ready with all information about the disease that originated from that particular country.

It is important to ensure that you have covered all eventualities including protecting your health while you are abroad. Falling sick during a vacation or business trip is no fun, but some diseases are preventable. As such, plan ahead and ensure that you and your family’s health risks are minimized during travels.

Launched in September 2009, the Fit-to-Fly campaign is a collaborative effort between GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceutical Malaysia (GSK) and the Malaysian Society of Infectious Diseases and Chemotherapy (MSIDC).The Fit-to-Fly website is a public access website to help raise awareness on the need for preventive travel medicine.
