Abstract : This is the first annual assessment of longitudinal injury studies and surveillance conducted by the Injury Prevention Division (IPD), U.S. Army Public Health Center (APHC) and the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) in support of the U.S. Armys implementation plan for gender integration. This assessment summarizes: (1) studies that provided the foundation for gender-neutral physical standards, (2) systematic musculoskeletal injury surveillance with baseline injury rates for women and men in the operational Active Army and Initial Entry Training (IET) from fiscal years 2011 to 2015, (3) physical fitness levels of Soldiers in IET, and (4) gaps in data access that may negatively affect future longitudinal studies and injury surveillance for gender integration.
