They do this by improving the quality of travel health advice available to GP practices and other healthcare providers.
NaTHNaC was created by the Department of Health in 2002. They are now commissioned by the Health Protection Agency (HPA) and hosted by University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
They work in partnership with their network founders:
