A trip to a tropical country can be a perfect escape from the dreary weather elsewhere in the world, but without proper planning, it could backfire spectacularly. 

At Health & Help we operate two clinics in tropical countries, so we think we’re almost experts at travelling and living in the tropics. We’ve collected some tips and tricks from our team, to help you plan and prepare for the perfect tropical escape!

If you are inspired by our medical work in the tropics, you can always join our community of wonderful donors by donating to the clinics.
