The Peace Corps will provide you with all the necessary
inoculations, medications, and information to stay healthy. Upon
your arrival in Mongolia, you will receive a medical handbook. At
the end of training, you will receive a medical kit with supplies to
take care of mild illnesses and first aid needs. The contents of the
kit are listed later in this chapter.

During pre-service training, you will have access to basic medical
supplies through the medical officer. However, you will be
responsible for your own supply of prescription drugs and any
other specific medical supplies you require, as the Peace Corps
will not order these items during training. Please bring a three-
month supply of any prescription drugs you use, since they may
not be available here and it may take several months for shipments
to arrive.

You will have physicals at midservice and at the end of your
service. If you develop a serious medical problem during your
service, the medical officer in Mongolia will consult with the
Office of Medical Services in Washington, D.C. If it is determined
that your condition cannot be treated in Mongolia, you may be
sent out of the country for further evaluation and care.
