We have published a series of materials on mosquito bite avoidance. These materials give information for those travelling showing the risks of getting bitten by a mosquito abroad and the diseases that could come with it. They also show how to avoid getting bitten as well as what to do if you feel unwell while abroad.
We have created a leaflet that can be downloaded here and will soon be available in 12 additional languages, and in BSL, large print, audio, braille and Easy Read versions. We have also created an animation which will be shared on our social media channels.
This leaflet gives information to travellers and encourages them to see a healthcare professional before travelling for personalised information on the risks in the country they are visiting as well as what vaccines or medications they may need before going. Please share these materials with your audience and further information on ordering physical leaflets is on the health publications website.
