•“Panelists’ consensus on the many issues that involve health and tourism additionally point to the need of establishing this area as a special branch of academic pursuit, and one requiring greater attention.

•The notion of “health” is endemic to both the demand and supply side of the tourism/health equation; ICT could better assist in defining consumer wants in “safe” travel destinations, and also assist in in better monitoring of health issues related to travel; Destinations can benefit from a type of tourism that gives respect to those who are paying the dollars by providing quality and healthful environments. . . this, in turn, creates a better health environment for local residents; In sum, tourism and health, involves both a supply side and demand side investigation. What works for the tourism or health sector is not always appropriate for the host population. BUT, generally, there are beneficial outcomes.
