This is the Facebook page for the travel health study that is being conducted by The University of Western Australia and the Western Australian Department of Health. The purpose of this study is to better understand the travel behaviours and experiences of Western Australians travelling to Bali.
We wish to gather information about your upcoming trip to Bali, Indonesia, including information about your accommodation, travel companions, planned activities, and your health in Bali. This survey was approved by the Western Australian Department of Health’s Human Research Ethics Committee (Project #2015/58).
By completing this survey, you will go into the draw to win a $1,000 Coles Myer voucher, or one of ten $100, Coles Myer vouchers. If you are selected as a winner you will receive your voucher via email at the conclusion of this study.
Involvement in this study requires that you be an Australian resident over the age of 18 years, who is travelling to Bali before (last day of study), and staying at least one night. You also must be willing to complete an online survey upon your return to Australia.
