What is Travel Medicine?

In the last 10 to 15 years, international travel for business and pleasure has increased dramatically.  It is now common for even relatively small companies to do business internationally and as a result, have a need for travel medicine.  When fewer people traveled, diseases tended to be localized to specific areas of the world, usually in developing countries.  Now, with the mixing of populations through international travel and migration, once rare diseases can be found in many parts of the world.  Diseases that were rare, like polio, are spreading.
