Excerpt
1. Definition of Problems Affecting the Health of Seafarers The health of seafarers is a problem that calls for international attention for a number of reasons. By the nature of his calling, the seafarer is obliged to travel from country to country and is exposed to great changes of climate and to any diseases that may be prevalent in the ports of call. He thus becomes a carrier of disease, so that the protection of his health is of importancenot only to himself and other members of the crew, but also to the shore populations of the countries he visits. Yet, on account of the nature of his employment, it is difficult to ensure for the seafarer the same standard of medical service as is generally available for other sections of the population. It was against this general background that the committee had to approach its task.
