The International Labour Organization's Maritime Labour Convention 2006 stipulates that all ships shall carry a medicine chest, medical

equipment and a medical guide. The International Medical Guide for Ships supports a main principal of that convention; to ensure that seafarers

are given health protection and medical care as comparable as possible to that which is generally available to workers ashore.


By carrying this guide on board ships, and following its instructions, countries can both fulfil their obligations under the terms of the

Maritime Labour Convention 2006, and ensure the best possible health outcomes for their seafaring population (K115E).

A​​s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.  

In other words, its role is to create a level playing-field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
