About Health Justice for Peace Corps Volunteers

Mission: To ensure that Peace Corps Volunteers, sick or injured by their service overseas, obtain the support and benefits to which they are entitled by law. We do this through individual support and advocacy and proposing and encouraging policy change. We offer an opportunity for people to connect with others going through difficult times who might otherwise feel ashamed for getting ill and frustrated by the bureaucracy.

Strategy: With a spirit of compassion and commitment, we work for health reform for current and former volunteers through-

  • Representing the interests of volunteers to the Peace Corps and the US Department of Labor
  • Publicizing the challenges facing Peace Corps Volunteers by creating relationships within the National Peace Corps Association, members of the media, and other service agencies
  • Constructive conversations with Congressional leaders and their staffs
  • Supporting one another through emails and dialogs
  • Monitoring the performance of the Peace Corps Medical system through surveys
