Child health offer

9th September 2005 at 01:00
Before a recent trip to the tropics, I found that my doctor's surgery had no advice to give me about avoiding malaria. I sat waiting while the practice nurse trawled the web for tips. Teachers escorting groups abroad and parents planning holidays need practical, reliable information.

Reassurance comes from Dr Jane Wilson-Howarth, a GP who has worked in England, Asia, South America and Africa, and Dr Matthew Ellis, a paediatrician and parent who has practised in Sudan, Ethiopia and Nepal.

They have produced a second edition of Your Child Abroad: a travel health guide (pound;10.95, www.bradtguides.com) updated with the latest medical advice, including information on anti-malarial drugs, insect repellents and immunisations.

We have 10 copies to give away to Friday readers. To enter our draw, email friday@tes.co.uk or send a postcard marked Bradt Guide Offer to the address on page 2 by September 23.
