plays an essential role in business and an estimated 5.1 million U.S. residents
travel internationally for business each year. The extensive business opportunities abroad also pose a variety of potential health risks, including
exposure to infectious diseases. To access Business Pulse, visit
travelers often have unique challenges, such as travelling at the last minute
and coping with fatigue from jet lag, along with the stress of work responsibilities.
In addition to the impact on a business traveler’s personal health, illness and
injury during business travel can significantly impact planned business
activities and goals, resulting in direct and indirect costs for the company.
“Millions of Americans travel each year, often
for business. Illnesses and injuries abroad can sideline not only the traveler
but the work they had planned. We encourage all travelers to prepare before
they head abroad and educate themselves to help ensure safe, healthy travel,”
said CDC Director Tom Frieden M.D., M.P.H.
