About Us

TravelHealthPro is the website comprising the travel health resources of the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC).

What we do

NaTHNaC was set up by the Department of Health in 2002 with the broad aim of Protecting the Health of British Travellers. We seek to improve the quality of travel health advice given by GP practices, travel clinics, pharmacies and other healthcare providers, and provide up-to-date and reliable information for the traveller, travel industry and national government.

We are commissioned by Public Health England and hosted by University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH); we also work in partnership with our other network founders Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM), London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the Hospital for Tropical Diseases (HTD). The network partners and Department of Health provide strategic guidance to NaTHNaC through representation on a Technical Advisory Group which meets quarterly.
