ln accordance with INTERNATIONAL SANITARY REGULATIONS all persons entering Togo are advised to be immunized against Yellow Fever, tetanus, malaria, cholera, typhoid, and hepatitis.
Do not submit your certificate together with visa application form. Keep it and present it at the port of entry in Togo. Following WHO guidelines issued in 1973, a cholera vaccination certificate is not a condition of entry to Togo. However, cholera is a serious risk in this country and precautions are essential. Up-to-date advice should be sought before deciding whether these precautions should include vaccination. Vaccination against typhoid is advised. Malaria risk exists throughout the year in the whole country.

Food drink: All water should be regarded as a potential health risk. Water used for drinking, brushing teeth or making ice should have first been boiled or otherwise sterilized. Milk is unpasteurized and should be boiled. Powdered or tinned milk is available and is advised but make sure that it is reconstituted with pure water. Avoid dairy products which are likely to have been made from unboiled milk. Only eat well-cooked meat and fish, preferably served hot. Pork, salad and mayonnaise may carry increased risk. Vegetables should be cooked and fruit peeled.
Other risks: Bilharzia (schistosomiasis) is present. Avoid swimming and paddling in fresh water; swimming pools which are well chlorinated and maintained are safe. Trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness) is reported, as are hepatitis A, B and E and meningococcal meningitis. Dracuncaliasis is common in the indigenous population, but unlikely to pose a significant threat to travelers.
Rabies is present. For those at high risk, vaccination before arrival should be considered. If you are bitten, seek medical advice without delay.
