Not just first aid - rename[edit]

The article is not just about first aid. Regular medication, for example, is not first aid. I suggest renaming to Travel health kit (there's a redirect that would be reversed). Nurg (talk) 02:06, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

First aid?[edit]

I think this page should be renamed. Are repellent and condoms first aid? Turbo8000 20:20, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Not really. But what name would you suggest? Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:40, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
Should we use "Travel health kit", as suggested above? That seems sensible. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:41, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
I can't move it. Turbo8000 22:40, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
I can. Does anyone object to renaming this article "Travel health kit"? Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:38, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
Ikan Kekek, no one is objecting that rename. So I highly recommend to rename. Turbo8000 16:19, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the reminder. I'll take care of this. Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:27, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Done. Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:28, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. Turbo8000 19:53, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
