    International Association for Medical Assistance to Travelers

Coping with different food, water, climate, altitude and environmental hazards, as well as different languages and customs, puts the traveller under psychological and physical stress. There is a good chance, too, that the travellers own immunities do not match the foreign local environment.

    IAMAT is a non-profit foundation whose aim is to advise travellers of health risks, geographical distribution of diseases, immunization requirements for all countries and to make available to travellers around the world competent medical care by western-trained doctors who speak English besides their mother tongue.
