Your Name (required)
Your Email (required)
A medical mission can be a stressful event for a healthy body and it can be risky for those with medical or psychological health conditions that are not managed properly before departure. It is not uncommon for a condition that was under control at home to flare up while on a mission.
Volunteers with known and ongoing medical problems, such as allergies or diabetes, must take special precautions in preparing for and managing their situation. You need to anticipate how your new environment and the stresses of a mission in a foreign country can impact your health. There may be fewer resources in foreign settings to help you deal with health problems. For example, a volunteer with allergies needs to ensure that specialized medications will be available, and someone with diabetic needs to consider the consequences of contracting malaria.
Volunteers Using Medication: If you use medication on a regular basis, you should take a supply to last throughout your stay and carry a letter from your physician explaining the medical necessity and treatment.
Travel Insurance: Alliance for Smiles (or Rotary International) provides travel medical insurance for all team members. All team members must be covered under this insurance policy, regardless of whether you have your own insurance policy.
