Abstract:

Joint Health Service Support JHSS Vision 2010 is a conceptual framework for developing and providing medical services to support the CINCs warfighting mission now and into the 21st century. It is a common direction for the services, commands and defense health agencies, oriented toward supporting our warfighters. An update to this vision is now incorporated in the document Focused Logistics, Joint Vision 2010, A Joint Logistics Roadmap, 1 August 1997. This version of the vision contains more detailed information regarding the healthy and fit force and casualty prevention components of the strategy. We must not relegate these components to a lower priority than the casualty care and management component. In concert with the National Military Strategy, the JHSS strategy supports the strategic concepts of overseas presence and power projection. It highlights that our medical forces will be CONUS based. They therefore must be deployable with full spectrum health capabilities, at the right time and place to provide effective and efficient care for our forces. In order to achieve this goal, the JHSS Vision 2010 focuses on three key components which align with the National Military Strategy 1 Healthy fit force - deploying a healthy and fit force on demand. A healthy force ready to deploy anywhere in the world and ready to withstand hardship is key wellness programs to support this goal are focused on physical fitness, health promotion and occupational health. Wellness requires continuous attention before, during and after deployment to sustain maximum readiness and warfighting capability. Stronger, more fit military members are less likely to be inured accidentally, more readily withstand exposure to diseases and stress, and more promptly health from wounds and injuries. These initiatives become the foundation to a robust force. We must establish a baseline for health, intervene to enhance readiness, and maintain health through multiple mission types.
