Global TravEpiNet (GTEN) Travelers’ Rapid Health Information Portal
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.
