Tropical diseases – an article by Heidi Marchena, pharmacist at Botica di Servicio

ARUBA – When planning your holiday abroad the logistics of the trip are usually taking up all the time and attention.  However, what you also should keep in mind is how to stay healthy abroad. Your first line of defense against tropical diseases and other maladies is protecting yourself. The three main ways that disease is spread are: contaminated food, contaminated water, and last but not least bites from mosquitoes, flies, ticks, fleas and other insects. Before packing your suitcase you should consult one of the specialized websites or your travel agency to inform you about what current health risks may be at hand at your destination. You may need to get a prescription or even a vaccination as a precaution.

Food and water risks – an article by Heidi Marchena, pharmacist at Botica di Servicio

Botica di Servicio ArubaARUBA - When traveling abroad, it is most likely contaminated water and food that possibly can make you sick and cause disease rather than the potential mosquito bites.
