Military Health System

Building Partner Capacity and Interoperability

Partner nation engagement, with the goal of building and supporting health system capabilities, is a critical element of global health engagement. Security threats from health catastrophes are real, and the spillover effects from breakdowns in health systems can be harder to contain than armed conflicts themselves. With this in mind, we are deeply invested in ensuring that our international partners have the capacity and the experience to address serious health threats, both in tandem with the U.S. Government, and on their own. Our collaboration with international partners also helps to improve our interoperability with their forces for future cooperation. 

Mil-Mil Partnerships

We conduct regular training exercises in the form of bilateral and multilateral partnership initiatives with foreign militaries to promote improved responses to threats to regional and global public health. These engagements are critical for producing an effective multinational response to threats like infectious disease or natural disaster, and they can also serve as a bridge to broader security and stability among nations.
