How can I find information about crises in other countries?
The U.S. Department of State Web site has a list of countries, with Consular information about each one. If you want to find out about intercountry adoption or the Avian Flu in Afghanistan, this is the place to look.
If you are traveling to another country and are concerned about your health abroad, visit this site from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Here, you can find information about vaccinations, diseases and travel medicine clinics.
