Abstract

Although exciting, preparing for travel can also be stressful. When travelling with children, extra thought needs to be given to health risks and how to prevent them. Children are more susceptible to illness than adults for a variety of reasons. In addition to their immune systems not being as developed as those of adults, the consequences of an illness in a child tend to be more serious than for the same illness in an adult. It may also be more difficult to identify an illness in babies and children as they are not yet able to talk or describe their symptoms.
