What is Hepatitis B?
As with hepatitis A, this is a virus that causes inflammation of the liver. Infection occurs through blood contact or unprotected sexual activity. Around 400 million people are infected across the world. Many sufferers develop cancer of the liver in due course. Vaccination based on a schedule offers protection for ten years. Travellers are increasingly advised to have the hepatitis B vaccination. There is also a combination vaccine against hepatitis A and B.
What is STD?
People who have unprotected sexual contact are at high risk of contracting venereal diseases. Besides gonorrhoea and chlamydia, which we see increasing cases of here, hepatitis B and HIV also pose a great threat in many distant destinations. Condoms offer protection. A vaccination is available against hepatitis B.
What is TBE?
Tick-borne Encephalitis: Infection of the meninges caused by a tick bite. The virus is transmitted directly after the bite; removal of the tick will not prevent infection with the virus.
