Advice For Travellers

Although the risk of exposure to Ebola for the general traveller was always very low, there is now no further risk in Liberia. However, because of the strain imposed by Ebola on the limited general public health services, control of other dangerous infectious diseases such as malaria has suffered. Thus, the risk of exposure to other health problems may be greater than before.
