Frequently, expatriates and humanitarian workers change their lifestyle during expatriation and take more risks. Exposure to sun and heat, alcohol abuse, unprotected sexual relationships, stress, accidents and security incidents are the main non infectious health risks. It is important to prevent them, as the consequences are more serious abroad. Their prevention lies on the responsibility of every individual to adapt their behaviour and lifestyle to the environment, as well as on institutional guidelines concerning risky behaviour.
