Seafarers are travellers and are exposed to the same health risks as all other travellers.
These guidelines, which you can view by clicking the view pdf button, provide an outline for better preparation for a seagoing trip at individual ship level.
This guidance is offered to our Members as part of the Club’s partnership with ISWAN to support their Seafarers Health Information Project (SHIP), an initiative that promotes and distributes health information materials to shipping companies, seafarers’ centres, and direct to seafarers.
The project consists of 10 core topics: food safety, on-board fitness, safe travel, healthy food, malaria, weight control, STI – HIV & Aids, mental care, dental care and skin care. Explore the other topics.
