Humanitarian Travel

Humanitarian workers are some of the most ‘at-risk’ travellers out there for the majority of their travel is to third world, isolated destinations and at times to natural disaster areas where disease is rife.

Travel to these areas can often be at very short notice, therefore not allowing time for full and appropriate pre-vaccination courses to be completed.

Humanitarian workers have a job to do so cannot afford to fall ill.

Humanitarian employers are responsible for managing the health and safety of their employees whilst overseas.

“This includes prior knowledge of the risks an employee is likely to face in particular locations, including health, security precautions, travel vaccinations and medications.”
- Evan Slade, Department of Labour NZ.

  • Illness -personal health and safety
  • Personal psychological stress
