“There is a global trend of increased traveling and increased number of people traveling every year.”
“In new environments, travelers effectively experience different ways of living, different customs and conditions and they are exposed to risks of contracting different, primary contagious diseases.”
“Today’s travelers spend sizable sums of money when traveling and they increasingly want to know more about places they travel to and also all potential health risk and measures to reduce those risks. Such information are sought from the physicians, pharmacists, travel agent and travel insurance agency staff.
The book titled International Travelers Health Care you decided to read is a result of that particular need.
The book features most common health risks that can be associated with traveling grouped on the basis of types of traveling and different means of transportation.
A portion of the book brings a detailed description of activities that should be carried out prior to traveling in order to minimize the potential risks during the traveling.
The book also provides basic characteristics of most common contagious deceases normally associated with traveling including causes, the way in which the diseases are transmitted, their clinical pictures, their geographical spread and importantly, risks travelers normally face and prevention measures.”Prof Zarema Obradović, PhD
Quotes from the Book Review:
Prof Atif Arnautović, PhD
“Surprisingly enough this is the first book in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region which provides an overall approach to this issue.
The author Prof Zarema Obradović, a member of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian American Academy of Arts and Sciences since 2009, included in her book the most recent global findings and her own experience as she has been actively involved in the past in all major public health trends and events in our country.”
”Value of this book is reflected in comprehensiveness of all relevant factors at each stage of traveling (prior and during the traveling, stay at the location and after the return).
The book is written in an even-tempered, comprehensible style and it is appealing to an average reader. In addition to general recommendations as regards the possible health risks, it provides specific travel-related information for different types of travel – by air, ship/cruiser, or land – and it features tropical diseases, STDs and diseases transmitted by food, air, water and insects, as well as blood circulation-related problems, pressure changes in sealed off spaces, UV radiation risks, etc.
The literature references (78 titles) shows that the book corresponds to fundamental and most recent global trends in this very specific area of public health”.
Ass. Prof. Sead Karakaš, PhD
“The book International Travelers Health Care is published at the time of worldwide globalization and ‘civilizational confrontation’ and as such it goes beyond the classical scholastic medical literature and has earned a full everyday importance.
This is in fact a comprehensive and detailed book which features the topics in questions in a contemporarily way using the latest scientific findings. The author is also very convincing in explain her own positions.
Another, probably even more important circumstance is the fact that thus far we did not have any adequate literature to provide all aspects and health risks in international travelers in an instructive fashion. Important is that we now have an extremely useful book in Bosnian language which has for the first time featured immensely important topics from practical stand point. The author has given her contribution in a very clear, concise, and precise way which will definitely be appealing to students, physicians, public health specialists and all of those whose jobs involve this particular matter.”
