An evaluation of sources of information on health and travel.


I surveyed by telephone 108 potential sources of information on health and travel. I posed as a traveler, and evaluated the information and referrals elicited by comparison to current standards set out by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Public Health Service. Only 7.4% potential sources gave correct information, 30.6% gave incorrect information, and 62% gave no information. 74.1% of those surveyed gave correct referrals, 22.2% gave incorrect referrals, and 3.7% gave no referrals.
