Conseils aux voyageurs à l'officine

Abstract : With the development of travel, exchanges and the globalization of production systems, trips have intensely increased, and as a consequence infectious diseases have spread accordingly. The pharmacist is often asked about infection risks and how to prevent them. Thus the advice to the traveler in pharmacy has to be precise, accurate, and perfectly adapted to the conditions and places visited. In the first part of this work, we will show the major infectious pathologies that a traveler may encounter. In second part, we will describe the various means of prevention according to the transmission way: hydric, fecal-oral route or vectorial. Then in the third part, in order to complete the preparations for the trip, we will quickly describe some of the administrative steps (special dispensation for the dispensing of the whole treatment in one piece, travel insurance...) that one has to perform in order to avoid any inconvenience during a stay abroad. The outcome of this work is the creation, for the pharmacist, of a guide containing recommendations and advices for the traveler, and also the redaction of two didactic flyers. The first flyer focuses on the setting of a first aid kit and the second contains a quick description of how to disinfect water using physico-chemical methods.
