The Cook Islands are about as far as you can get from the trouble spots of the world, and indiscriminate international terrorist attacks are highly unlikely here.
Dengue fever outbreaks occur from time to time, but the resorts are well fumigated and it's usually local residents rather than visitors who are impacted by this mosquito-borne disease. For government travel advisories, contact the following organisations:

The Cook Islands are self governing 'in free association' with New Zealand and are represented abroad in countries where they have no consular offices by New Zealand embassies and high commissions (see New Zealand section).
