About Travel Health Advisor

Travel Health Advisor is a travel health advisory service that was established in 1988 in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

For an annual subscription fee, Travel Health Advisor provides up-to-date travel health advice for itineraries anywhere in the world. These services are used by doctors, pharmacists, pathologists, corporations, government departments and travel agents in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Currently, over 900 medical centres and 8000 health professionals use these services. Travel Health Advisor also provides limited health advice for non-subscribers.

All advice provided to Travel Health Advisor subscribers is based on Australian and New Zealand standards and recommendations, set by the Australian National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the NZ National Health Council (NHC). It is supplemented by information sourced from respected global organisations including the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Centers for Diseases Control and prevention (CDC). It includes vaccination, seasonal disease and malaria recommendations as well as health news appropriate for each destination. Also included where appropriate are travel advisories from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) and the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

All new information is assessed by internationally recognised experts in travel health to ensure validation and accuracy. Advice is maintained and updated regularly, daily when required, for over 265 countries and 84 disease conditions. The presentation of the recommendations and advisories in any form remain the property of THA. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information supplied by THA but no warranty is given, express or implied, as to accuracy, completeness or usefulness of the information and all liability is excluded save in respect of personal injury or death caused by the negligence of the provider. The information supplied is for use only by subscribers to the website service of Travel Health Advisor. Reproduction of, rebadging, or holding out THA documents and/or services in any form or manner to be from a source other than Travel Health Advisor is expressly forbidden. Any such breaches will be investigated and dealt with as appropriate.

Travel Health Advisor holds or participates regularly in continuing education seminars. Travel Health Advisor sells personal vaccination booklets to record immunisations (International Health Certificate) which are mandatory for travel to many destinations worldwide. Travel Health Advisor also publishes and sells a common-sense guide to malaria called "Taking the Mystery out of Malaria". Travellers can contact Travel Health Advisor to find the nearest clinic that subscribes to our service, where the traveller can obtain a travel health report, travel vaccinations and antimalarials.
