About this title


The significance of travel and tourism in relation to the international epidemiology of sexually transmitted infections has been widely recognized for many years. With the appearance of AIDS/HIV, a new impetus has been given to research in this field and to the consideration of practical preventative initiatives targeting international travellers. Considerable attention has also been given to the impact which international tourism has had on the development of commercial sex industries in different destinations around the world. In particular, serious concerns have been expressed about the role of international tourism in promoting the sexual exploitation of children and young people. This edited collection of 16 chapters makes a contribution to this debate. It provides a comprehensive overview of research findings and discusses their implications for health - both for the international traveller and of the local communities in major tourism destinations.
