Accidents cause many Peace Corps deaths
CHICAGO (AP)-Motorcycle ac-
cidents and suicide killed more young
Peace Corps volunteers during a
recent seven-year period than the
tropical diseases that plague the
Third World, a new study says.
The study, published in today's
Journal of the American Medical
Association, suggest the Peace Corps
should shift its concern for volunteers
from exotic diseases to accident
prevention. Dr. Stephen Hargarten, a
specialist in emergency medicine,
conducted the study from 1961 to 1983.
FOR VOLUNTEERS between the
ages of 20 and 29, suicides and motor-
cycle accidents were the leading
causes of death from 1977 to 1983, ac-
counting for 13 of 34 fatalities in that
group, the study said.
Ron DeFore, a Peace Corps
spokesman, said the agency already
had altered some of its training
"Some of the problems, there may
not be any solution for," DeFore said
in a telephone interview Wednesday
"FOR EXAMPLE, in some rural
areas there are all sorts of wild
animals that can cross these roads,
and unless you're going extremely
slow, you can come close to or hit
some of them," DeFore said.
"What's more important, fencing in
a road or developing a country's
He also said the Peace Corps was
working to reduce the number of
suicides through screening and coun-
The Peace Corps is attempting to
confront that problem, DeFore said.
The Peace Corps, created in 1961 by
the Kennedy administration to assist
developing nations, has about 6,000
people in the field, down from a high
of about 15,000 in 1966.
DeFore said the rising number of
suicides among young volunteers was
particularly troubling because the
proportion ,,f volunteers 20 to 29 years
old is increasing-from 57 percent of
the Peace Corps in 1978 to 79 percent
There were seven suicides in that
age group between 1977 and 1983.
"In the early years of the Peace
Corps, there were no reported cases of
suicide," Hargarten said. "That is
now the second most frequent cause of
death" for that age group, after
DeFore and Hargarten agree that,
despite increased emphasis on vehicle
safety, some safety measures must be
taken by developing nations.
