Medical Centre for International Travellers (MCIT)
Everyone enjoys a trip abroad but not with the health problems that may come with it. These can range from a minor illness like "travellers diarrhoea" to more serious ones like cholera, typhoid, malaria, yellow fever and sexually transmitted diseases. It takes some effort to be a healthy traveller, but it is extremely worthwhile. Our friendly and professional staff from Changi General Hospital (CGH) offers vaccination services and travel advice, as well as catering for the corporate traveller, missionaries and expedition travellers
