Abstract:

As the United States contends with the strategic uncertainty in the post-Cold War era, it must consider the role of its military forces in operations other than war OOTW, such as peacekeeping, peace enforcement, or humanitarian assistance. In these operations, medical issues tend to play a more central role than in combat operations and the medical support requirements tend to be broader, particularly if a multinational force is involved. Hence, OOTW may place greater and new demands on the Army Medical Department AMEDD.
