Global TravEpiNet (GTEN) Travelers' Rapid Health Information Portal

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This web page uses an interactive online form to provide travelers with general health advice and recommendations, based on age and the country or countries to be visited. The Travelers’ Rapid Health Information Portal (TRhIP) checklist includes things to do before the trip, such as seeing a health care provider for personalized advice, vaccines, medications, and planning for emergencies. It also includes recommendations for what travelers can do during a trip to protect themselves from illness and injury, and tips on what to follow up on with a health care provider after the trip. Links to CDC resources such as destination-specific health recommendations and current travel notices are provided. TRhIP provides additional guidance to travelers if they select a country where Zika virus is present. It clarifies that there are special concerns for pregnant women and for male partners of pregnant women who are traveling to countries with Zika virus, and they should see a health care provider before the trip to get personalized recommendations.

TRhIP is sponsored by the Global TravEpiNet (GTEN) and provides health advice for safe international travel based on the recommendations of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Massachusetts General Hospital also offers the Global TravEpiNet (GTEN) Pre-Travel Providers' Rapid Evaluation Portal (Pre-Travel PREP). This web page is a free clinical reference tool that helps healthcare professionals give up to date and destination-specific recommendations to patients who are traveling internationally. Developed to act as an interactive Yellow Book (CDC's Health Information for International Travel), Pre-Travel PREP uses an online form to assist clinicians in preparing a U.S. traveler for a safe and healthy international trip. The form asks basic questions about the provider, and uses the traveler's age, sex, destination county, context of travel, and medical problems or conditions to deliver recommendations. These recommendations are meant to be used by the healthcare professional as an adjunct to the management of clinical care.
