Nancy Tongue and her Health Justice for Volunteers team have been working to establish adequate post service care for Volunteers who have service connected medical problems. The GAO has issued an analysis on the benefits afforded RPCVs vs the benefits of Govermemt contractors such as State Department and USAID. Here is the first reporting we did on the issue : http://peacecorpsworldwide.org/report-from-congress-on-post-service-disability-benefits/
Now, Jonathan Pearson, National Peace Corps Association Advocate, has summarized the report. Read his commentary at: http://www.peacecorpsconnect.org/2015/11/study-examines-peace-corps-workers-comp-program/
Health Justice for Volunteers has reviewed the report and issued a response. The response points out deficiency with the data in the report. Follow the link at the bottom of Jonathan’s report to read their response.
