We're here for you - before and after your trip

Centre for Tropical and Travel Medicine

Are you planning an exciting adventure abroad? Are you travelling with children, are you pregnant or on regular medication? Or would you just like to check your vaccination status? At the Centre for Tropical and Travel Medicine, we offer expert care and advice - before and after your trip. Our dedicated medical team provides individual advice, the recommended vaccinations and important health precautions for any type of travel. We are committed to comprehensive travel health and see around 16,000 travellers each year. We specialise in travel-related and tropical diseases and are here to help you if you develop any symptoms of illness after your trip.

Pre-Travel Advice

During our travel medicine consultations, we discuss the most important precautions with you, such as malaria prophylaxis and mosquito repellent, as well as any recommended or required vaccinations for your trip. All vaccinations can be administered directly by us.

Sick After Travel

We are here to help after your trip, should you return with any symptoms of illness, whether it is fever, prolonged diarrhoea or skin problems. We can diagnose even very rare diseases quickly and competently through our reference centre for human parasitic diseases, and start effective treatment immediately.

General Vaccination Advice

We are your partner for vaccinations. In addition to all the vaccinations required for travelling, we also administer all routine vaccinations after a consultation and review of your vaccination status.

For Medical Staff

We provide expert advice to medical specialists, for example on differential diagnosis, diagnostic procedures and treatment of tropical and parasitic diseases, or on ordering anti-parasitic drugs. Together with the Diagnostic Centre of Swiss TPH, we serve as the National Reference Centre for Human Parasitic Diseases.
