||Health care for seafarers in Indonesia
||2000, Vol. 51, No.1/4, p.92-95.
||It is estimated that there are approximately 70,000 seafarers in Indonesia. In 1998, the Indonesian government appointed the Maritime Occupational Office (MOH) as the authorized office to issue health certificates for maritime workers. The MOH also organizes health care and health education, and conducts environmental assessments at maritime workplaces. In 1999, the government issued a decree on medical standards which referred to the ILO/WHO guidelines for conducting pre-sea and periodic medical fitness examinations for seafarers. The article describes the current approach to the medical examination of seafarers and suggests a few areas for possible improvement.
