Health Tips 

Illness Prevention

The number one cause of illness travelers experience is through food and waterborne diseases.  Always make sure that your food and drinking water are safe.  Otherwise, you may experience diarrhea and vomiting as a result of contamination by viruses, bacteria or parasites.  Other diseases from food or water contamination may be cholera, typhoid fever or hepatitis.

Since there is a limited risk of malaria in some parts of Algeria, Egypt and Morocco (as well as other diseases such as dengue, falariasis which are transmitted by mosquitos), it's recommended to wear long sleeved shirts, pants and a hat while outside whenever possible.  Try to be diligent about mosquito protection particularly between dusk and dawn, when mosquitos are most active.
