Everyone is interested in their health and safety when traveling.  Whether it is an African safari, climbing ruins in Latin America, a sailing venture in the Caribbean, or just business travel in a foreign country, there are key elements to consider related to your health and safety.  Compounding these concerns is fear about emerging diseases like Zika, Ebola, or bird flu.  Travel security is intertwined with your health and can be an issue depending on your destination.
