Form No.: AID 1420-62.
Title: AID Contractor Employee Physical Examination Form.
Type of Review: Renewal of Information Collection.
Purpose: When USAID hires contractor personnel for overseas assignments, the contractors are required to obtain a physicians's certification that they are physically qualified to engage in the type of activity for which they will be employed. Physicians who do not regularly deal with patients going to lesser-developed countries do not appreciate the difficulties of providing even the most basic medical services in many such areas. This form requests the minimum information needed in order to make a determination as to whether or not the individual should travel to the post in question. The State Department's Office of Medical Services (M/MED) reviews the form prior to departure to insure the Mission or Embassy medical facility can meet special medical needs of the contractor. Thus the need for future medical evacuations would be reduced, since M/MED would find most existing medical problems that could not be dealt with locally and the individual would then most likely be denied approval to post.
