Medical Advisory Group

The Medical Advisory Group is a special committee established by the IATA Director General, who appoints up to ten members specializing in aviation medicine or occupational health.


The Group advises IATA and the airline community on health issues related to travel, provides expert representation on behalf of the industry on aviation medical matters and liaises with other related organizations such as the World Health Organization, ICAO and regional airline trade associations on medical and cabin health matters.

The Group also reviews and updates guidelines and recommended practices relating to on-board medical care and health-related issues, as well as the IATA Medical Manual.
