In this third edition of Manual of Travel Medicine, Australasian healthcare professionals will continue to find the information and advice they need to care for travellers. The Manual is structured as follows: *principles of pre-travel healthcare; *immunisation; *prevention and management of malaria; *prevention and management of travellers' diarrhoea; *specific infectious and non-infectious conditions; *travellers with specific needs; and *health issues in returned travellers. *Recommendations for common travel destinations and immunisation and malaria recommendations by country are summarised. For this edition: *all original chapters have been reviewed and updated; *a chapter, 'Health issues in returned travellers', which focuses on the more common and important illnesses and their presentations, has been added; *information about and recommendations for the use of new vaccines has been added; *15 of the 21 infection-distribution maps are now printed in full colour; and Mike Starr and Jim Black have joined the author team. For doctors, nurses, and pharmacists, this third edition of the Manual will continue to prove a practical, user-friendly, and authoritative desk-top reference. About the Authors: Allen Yung has been the principal driver of all three editions of this Manualvand the several versions of the guidelines for Fairfield Infectious Diseases Hospital registrars which preceded it. For all the authors of this Manual - and for many others besides - Allen has been a friend and mentor of the kind that everyone should have. Within a year of publication of this edition of the Manual in printed form, Allen died. His co-authors dedicate this edition to Allen, with deep gratitude. Allen left China as a child, and came eventually to Tasmania, benefiting from the Friends' School in Hobart, which has contributed to the life journeys of many remarkable people. For several decades at Fairfield, until it closed in 1996, and then at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Allen taught succeeding generations of infectious disease physicians. He was the consummate clinician, astute, patient, focussed, a pre-eminent listener, bringing extensive experience to bear, but always willing to be surprised and to learn. His golden rules abide the test of time. He is fondly remembered around Australia and beyond. We salute a great physician and teacher, and a fine, compassionate, gentle, and humble man. Karin Leder, Joseph Torresi, Tilman Ruff, Daniel O'Brien, Mike Starr, Jim Black.
