Welcome to the WRHA Travel Health & Tropical Medicine Services Website. The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) offers travel health services for travellers who want to stay healthy while travelling or who require medical care when experiencing illness after returning home from travel. We offer a full range of services and are a federally designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre. Please click here to find out more about our clinic and about other links. We provide Health Information for the traveller as well as Health Information for the Health Professional. Our services also meet the standards of the Public Health Agency of Canada Guidelines for the Practice of Travel Medicine. The goals of our program are to promote a positive travel experience, to reduce the incidence and subsequent transmission of travel acquired communicable diseases, to protect the health of the population of Winnipeg and other areas within Manitoba, as well as to manage tropical and travel-related illness by providing education, immunization, prophylaxis, and treatment to travellers.
Our clinic is recognized as a leader in travel health and tropical medicine services by Manitoba Health who has contracted with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority to develop and establish the Manitoba Travel Health Network.
A provincial Rabies Occupational Health Services Program, for high risk, eligible individuals is also coordinated through the WRHA Travel Health & Tropical Medicine Services.
