There is a wide variety of information available to you, related to your health and safety abroad. Review the following resources, as relevant, to be best prepared for your education abroad program.  

International SOS Health and Safety Information

As a traveler from the University of Colorado Boulder, you have access to location-specific health and safety information provided by International SOS. To access International SOS’s resources:

In addition to these country reports, you also have other options as well:
