This page attempts to break down medical restrictions—that is, if you have a certain restriction, what countries will accept that restriction? This is in no way complete and should be considered an on-going project. Also, please keep in mind that sometimes, even though a medical condition is generally accepted in a country—that there can be personal complications that could affect one person and not another.
This information was compiled from a survey and additions and should be considered incomplete/fluid.
Countries Able to Accommodate
Countries Unable to Accommodate
- China (could not accommodate age 81)
- Namibia Ministry of Education will not accept anyone who turns 65 during service.
So here's a question: Why does Peace Corps work with organizations that discriminate on the basis of age?
