UN Examining Physicians are appointed mostly to perform pre-placement, periodic medical examinations (when indicated by relevant ST/AI or administrative guidelines of the respective UN Agencies, Funds, and Programs), as well as to advise the Administration on medical evacuations.
United Nations sponsored clinics in the field
Basic health services are available to all internationally and nationally recruited staff members of the UN system and their recognized dependants at UN clinics established in locations where the local health services are found to be inadequate.
Specific hours are set at the local level, and a physician is always on call to meet any medical emergencies outside the fixed hours. The medical staff knows the local medical and dental facilities and will coordinate and/or make arrangements with local hospitals to facilitate admissions of UN staff members.
