Zika Prevention

The health, safety, and well-being of our Baylor students, faculty, and staff is of utmost concern to Baylor Missions as we plan our mission trips around the globe. Each trip goes through a rigorous proposal process assessing medical and travel risks alike.

In light of past Zika outbreaks affecting our brothers & sisters in Central & South America, Baylor continues to keep a close eye on the outbreak and is proactive in keeping our teams safe by providing our teams with practical ways to prevent the spread of the virus while abroad.

We are proud to continue to serve with our global partners in Central & South America, and our prayers go out to the families and communities of those affected by the Zika outbreak worldwide.
