Mission Statement

Empower international travelers with information to maximize each person's unique immunization needs.


The complex issues we face as a society require respect for different viewpoints. Race, class, generation, gender, and geography all affect point of view.

Reflecting these differences in our reporting leads to better, more nuanced stories and a better-informed community. We seek diverse voices in our management and reporting staff. Here is our advisory board.

Our news-gathering team is independent of commercial or political interests. We do not accept gifts, including paid travel, in order to avoid any conflict-of-interest or appearance thereof. Our digital newsroom is insulated from any interaction with advertisers. We cite potential conflicts of interest on the same page as the published, relevant work. We do not allow third parties to "ghost-write" news articles. If you have any questions contact [email protected].

We take many steps to ensure accuracy, such as:

  • We investigate claims with skepticism; question assumptions; challenge conventional wisdom;
  • We confirm information with subject-matter experts, and seek to corroborate what sources tell us by talking with other informed people or consulting documents;
  • We verify content, such as technical terms, stats, etc, against source documents or make clear who is providing the information. We may share relevant components of a story with a primary source or an outside expert to verify them.

Corrections Policy

Our news organization is committed to telling readers when an error has been made, the magnitude of the error and the correct information, as quickly as possible. This commitment to transparency is applicable to small errors as well as large.  Please send any suggested changes to [email protected].
