Published Date

The 2019 coronavirus (COVID-19) has the potential to lead to increased rates of complex illness in personnel and recognized dependents, and hence to an increased need for medical evacuation (MEDEVAC).

This document from the United Nations Department of Operational Support provides guidance for missions and country offices on MEDEVAC in the context of COVID-19.
