comment What is the most effective advice to avoid/minimise risk of illness when travelling in Africa?
(to clarify, a year for it to become obvious he had the creature, before it decided to reveal itself in the clear part of his eye). thoughts welcome.

Thanks again these are great points, including the points on food hygiene to avoid illness - I accept that for these, those step are the best one can do, and that it is about reducing the risk. But I would welcome thoughts on how far one can avoid acquiring parasites through being bitten for example. I remember watching a TV prog where a chap had a tiny worm wriggling across the clear part of his eye. I think he was treated successfully but it took about at least a year for it to manifest. As said in my question, I'm looking to be informed as to how much these really are a risk, if at all.
