The IRC’s Staff Health Advisor provides a helpful service to the IRC community for all staff health matters by leading a staff health support line. Through this service, staff are able to direct their health-related questions to, and get answers from an emergency health professional within 24 hours (Monday – Friday).

While the Staff Health Advisor is unable to provide medical treatment—that is the role of your physician—IRC staff can count on this role to provide general advice, to help you access accurate information from trusted sources, and to interpret IRC health guidance for your unique situation. Please send your health questions to and we will do our best to support your health and safety. (Note: Online translation will be used where needed)
