A number of U.S. and global institutions maintain information about outbreaks of disease and other issues that may affect health, on a country by country basis. For more information on health, including recommended vaccinations, visit:
The UNC Department of Environmental Health and Safety has additional resources on travel immunizations.
The UNC Internal Medicine Travel Clinic provides comprehensive consultations about reducing the risk of illness during travel, including immunizations and prescriptions for medication to prevent travel related illness. Campus Health Services also offers an International Travel Clinic for those UNC community members eligible for CHS services who will be traveling abroad.
UNC Library Travel Resources
The UNC library has developed a website that provides country information, language resources and travel resources. Although the site is targeted to students who will be pursuing study abroad, there is helpful information for all global travelers.
Cultural Awareness for UNC Students
The Center for Global Initiatives annually hosts GO!, a global orientation on culture and ethics for UNC students.
UNC Global Passport Drive
Each fall, UNC Global hosts a passport drive for UNC students, faculty, staff and their families. Passport photos are available from the UNC One Card Office, and officials from the U.S. Department of State will be on campus for two days to accept passport applications and renewal applications.
