To all Ziners

For anyone concerned with finding an English speaking doctor while travelling, the following may be useful:

IAMAT - International Association for Medical Assistance to Travellers

This Canadian group provides many services, most importantly, a comprehensive directory of western-trained, English speaking doctors around the world. This booklet is updated and published yearly and will fit in your shirt pocket. They also provide additional information such as immunization recommendations and health risks. There is no charge for this - IAMAT exists solely on voluntary contributions. The doctors agree to a set payment schedule for IAMAT members and the association accepts no fee from anyone. An IAMAT member is guaranteed qualified medical assistance from an English-speaking physician.
