This is a renewal of an active information collection and a revision. The current active renewal covers the Peace Corps Health Status Review form (PC-1789) and the Report of Medical Exam (PC-1790 S). The revision is to add an HIV Aids question to the PC-1789 form and to add the Report of Dental Exam form (PC-1790) to this collection for a total of three forms to make up the health applications for Peace Corps Volunteers. The purpose of this information collection is necessary to ensure that Volunteers meet this medical eligibility requirement, all applicants for service must undergo physical and dental examination prior to Volunteer service to provide the information needed for clearance, and to serve as a reference for any future Volunteer medical clearance, and to serve as a reference for any future Volunteer disability claims. The Health Status Review is used to review the medical history of individual applicants; the Report of Medical Exam and the Report of Dental Exam are used by the examining physician and dentist both for applicants and for currently serving Volunteers. The results of these examinations are used to ensure that applicants for Volunteer service will, with reasonable accommodation, be able to serve in the Peace Corps without jeopardizing their health.

The purpose of this notice is to allow for public comment on whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Peace Corps, including whether their information will have practical use; the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; ways to enhance the quality, utility and the clarity of the information to be collected; and, ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology.
