Business Pulse: Travelers’ Health, launched today by CDC Foundation, provides businesses and corporate travelers a wide range of online resources from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help them better prepare for international trips. The resources include guidelines, tips and current data to help safeguard travelers against infectious diseases, as well as road hazards and environmental concerns that can sideline personal health and business productivity.

Travel plays an essential role in business and an estimated 5.1 million U.S. residents travel internationally for business each year. However, the extensive business opportunities abroad also pose a variety of health risks, including exposure to infectious diseases.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) works to safeguard travelers against infectious diseases, as well as road hazards and environmental concerns that can sideline personal health and business productivity.
