Abstract : Through PEPFAR and DoD resources, the US Department of Defense provides the world's largest source of HIV assistance to militaries and works with a worldwide cadre of military HIV experts to combat the harm that HIV inflicts on the health and readiness of the world's military populations. Encouraging sustainability through the development of local capacity and expansion of facilities remains an important priority for DHAPP. Additionally, the activities in this report are dedicated to supporting the US Global Health Initiative and the DoD has become a key partner in the US Government interagency effort to implement GHI principles. This report highlights very successful strengthening of health care systems in foreign militaries through out the world.
