Travel Clinic

If you are planning a trip outside Mauritius, please ensure that you and your loved ones are protected. You may run the risk of contracting a disease while travelling; it is even possible you may pass on an infection to your family on returning. Travellers with an illness, recent medical intervention or those on medical devices should have a pre-travel consultation to optimise safety.

Benefits
The Travel Clinic can help to protect your health whilst travelling out of the country and upon your return home. We receive the latest travel and destination information on a regular basis, so you can seek help and advice from professionals that is up-to-date and in line with the latest issues and requirements. We also provide advice and prescribe medications for travellers with medical conditions.

Please have the following information available when you visit the clinic:

  • Travellers with medical conditions should provide information on recent medical and surgical interventions, and the use of any medical devices
  • A list of all the medications you take
  • Dates of departure and return to Mauritius

Medications
If you are travelling to one of the many tropical or subtropical countries where malaria is endemic, we will provide anti-malarial medication (malaria prophylaxis), educational literature and recommendations on avoiding insect-borne illnesses. To prevent gastrointestinal disorders, we offer advice on avoiding food-borne illnesses and may recommend anti-diarrhoeal medication.
