Abstract Missionaries and their families are a unique group warranting aggressive preventive medical intervention for infectious diseases. Preparation for travel must include careful counseling and optimal use of vaccines and chemoprophylaxis. For infants and very young children, data defining safety and efficacy of these agents are often limited. However, accumulated experience suggests that young family members usually may be managed similarly to older children and adults.
