Travel Medicine Kits

In remote areas and in economically developing countries healthcare is rarely comparable to that in the U.S. IMC has developed region-specific medicine kits, for use as a back-up in emergencies remote from reliable medical care. Our kits contain information on illnesses, as well as medications for first-response treatment initiation until appropriate medical care can be located. Where indicated, antimalarial medications are included.

In addition, IMC has created sterile syringe and suture kits (Bloodborne Pathogen Protection Kit). Risk of bloodborne infections such as HIV or hepatitis B/C is high in “developing” countries where needles and IV supplies in short-supply may be re-used. And so, such kits with sterile supplies can be reassuring when forced to engage emergently in the local healthcare system.

Similarly, in response to traveler requests, IMC has devised an Ebola Kit for travel to or near West African countries involved in the outbreak to allow real-time disinfection and barrier/respiratory protection for Ebola at-risk situations.

Travel Kit Ordering

You can order any of IMC’s travel kits, although we cannot supply prescription medications, just a manifest of suggested prescriptions we would have provided if you were an on-site patient. After our physician specialist reviews your personal data he will provide recommendations on specific medications, doses, schedules, and durations. You can then have your personal physician fill them.
