Hi all. One thing I haven't noticed on the forum, is any advice to pack medical supplies. When in places like Africa, or any place with possible "dodgy" medical centres/ hospitals.I always pack sterile needles and syringes, bandages, dressing pads, anti-biotics etc. If you end up in hospial for any reason, it is best to have your own supplies rather than risk infection or disease by having a second hand needle used on you!!!!

Check out the Travellerspoint packing list. Do you think it covers it in terms of medical supplies or should there be more?

It's kind of hard to have a list like this by the way. Some people always carry something that someone else would never take, etc. etc. But let me know if you have any additions!
