Global Health Engagement

The Department of Defense executes Global Health Engagement or "GHE" activities to establish and improve the capabilities of Partner Nations' military or civilian health sectors, or those of the DoD. 

Global Health Engagement Spotlight

DoD's GHE activities advance operational readiness and protect our troops, build interoperability so we can work more effectively with the armed forces of our partner nations, and enhance security cooperation so DoD can establish and maintain strong relationships around the world.  A key enabler to regional stability and security for DoD's combatant commands, GHE reduces risks to U.S. armed forces while fostering mission capability of partner nations' forces so that together, we can continue working effectively to defend global interests.
