Abstract : The proceedings include the Technical Evaluation Report, two key-note addresses and solicited papers of the Specialists' meeting sponsored by the NATO Human Factors and Medicine Panel and held at the Ukrainsky Dim in Kiev, Ukraine, 4-6 September 2000. Recent major events across the world and at national levels have radically altered the global picture and have reshaped the NATO strategy from one aimed at resolving international conflict to one predominantly aimed at missions other than war (peacekeeping, humanitarian, disaster relief, etc.). Most of these missions are performed by multinational forces, which requires the cooperation of all military services including the medical support systems. The new objectives require radical changes in the organizational structure, management, and supply of national and allied military health systems. The purpose of this Specialists' Meeting was to exchange information and experience on Health Service Support (HSS) of multinational troops, to review the development of interoperable forms of multinational HSS in the field, to examine the lessons learned during actual operational deployment of multinational medical facilities, and to discuss the interplay between multinational, alliance/NGO, and civil/military operations in coping with disasters which require alliance or EAPC assistance.
