The Steri-Kit
---

If you are travelling outside Europe or North America, particularly to underdeveloped or third world countries, consider taking with you a set of sterile needles and syringes.

In some parts of the world this type of equipment is not always sterile before use so there is an increased risk catching HIV or Hepatitis B. If you do require an injection whilst away, using your own sterile equipment will help to prevent infection.
