I founded Health Justice for Peace Corps Volunteers in March 2012 after sgnltguirg wtih my Peace Corps-related illnesses for decades. White it is tragic that it has taken multiple efforts on the part of hundreds of returned volunteers and the creation of a formal group to bring about improvements, I am pleased that since the creation of this group, Peace Corps’ Acting Director (Carrie Hessler-Radelet) has mobilized to create new positions for staff within the agency to offer support for those who have become sick or injured as a result of service. She promptly hired a consultant, Carol Chappell to intervene. And Carrie came to my home to learn about the magnitude of the health issues many of us have suffered, poring through and even photographing my many filing cabinets filled with documents pertaining to the Peace Corps Post Service Unit. the USDOL and my personal claim. Carol personally worked for months to obtain coverage for a necessary medical procedure for me that had been denied by the USDOL and succeeded. My issues are not fully resolved and may never be but I hope that the battles to get procedures approved and covered lessen and consume less of my time allowing more time for my lifes goals. And I know that many out there are suffering gravely. While the recent GAO investigation and resulting report are a welcome beginning to examining long-standing problems within both the USDOL and Peace Corps’ handling of healthcare for volunteers, it fails to provide significant insight into the issues or make many recommendations beyond what was already known.” We feel changes in legislation are also needed in the following areas to: 1. Place an expert with knowledge of Peace Corps job service and health issues within the USDOL to broker our claims, since the paperwork doesnt reflect our unique types of health issues or job responsibilities 2. Create a health insurance plan, as other Federal employees have when they become sick/injured on a job. When volunteers return home sick/injured some become uninsurable due to their “pre-existing illness” from their Peace Corps service.” Because we are deemed volunteers and not employees, we are not grated the same privileges that other federal employees get.b7 3. Increase the “value” of Peace Corps Volunteers to a level greater than a GS-7, step 1 so that when they are unable to work, due to illness/injury, their disability is not fixed at a level that keeps them in poverty in America.Health Justice for Peace Corps Volunteers remains hopeful that the concerns of the Acting Director and newly hired staff at Peace Corps will continue to advocate for our needs and that legislation can be enacted to make positive changes permanent, especially within the USDOL. The general public knows little of the suffering many have endured because of service-related health issues since the founding of the Peace Corps fifty one years ago. Fortunately, we now have some advocates at Peace Corps who truly seem to understand the magnitude of the issues.
