Thank you to Alys Bunce who delivered this 1-day course. Her up-to-date knowledge and obvious enthusiasm for Travel Health made it so interesting and informative. Particularly useful was the signposting to resources to check for any health and policy updates. I also loved the 5 Ts of Tropical disease framework. Thank you!
