Unexpected circumstances are part of the joys of travel; but when health issues occur, a travel health kit provides valuable support!
Regardless of the chosen destination, whether for business or pleasure, it can be very helpful to have a well-stocked travel health kit on hand. Because we never know what we may encounter, it’s better to have thought of everything—or just about.
The contents of your travel kit must of course be adapted to your destination and to travel conditions. First aid supplies and medications may not always be accessible in other countries or may differ from those offered in Canada.
It can be difficult to anticipate the difficulties that might occur during a trip. This is why it is important to think ahead and to make a list. The person best suited to help you is undoubtedly your pharmacist. Speak to them shortly before your trip.
If you are travelling with a child, it is all the more important to ask your pharmacist for advice. Not only can they help you to choose the appropriate products and medications, but they can also determine the doses to be administered if needed.
Here are some examples of items that you should include in your travel health kit:
Also, remember to bring:
Your medication and your medication list should be with you at all times; keep them in your carry-on. Bring more medication than necessary for the duration of the trip in case of an unforeseen delay.

In addition to providing sound advice, they can prescribe medication intended to prevent mountain sickness or malaria (paludism) and to treat travellers' diarrhea, if your situation requires it and if you meet certain prescription criteria. Fill out the form provided below, and bring it for your next visit to the pharmacy.
