HIV & Sexually Transmitted Diseases

There is a very high risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms are widely available, but some travelers have found packs for sell beyond the sell-by date. Take the necessary precautions! Also take a good sterile needle kit.

Accidents and Injuries

Accidents and injuries kill many more travellers than exotic infectious diseases: be constantly alert! Risks arise not just from the accidents themselves but also from the scarcity of skilled medical care. Don’t drive on unfamiliar, unlit roads at night. Don’t ride a moped, motorcycle or bicycle. Don’t drink and drive, and don’t drive too fast. Insist that taxi-drivers drive carefully when you are a passenger. Use seat belts, and for children, take your own child seats. Take special care at swimming pools: never drink and swim, and always check the depth. Carry a small first aid / medical kit. Minor wounds may easily become infected: look after them carefully and seek prompt attention if necessary.
