BISAC: MED089000

Female servicemembers are serving in more complex occupational specialties and are being deployed to combat operations, potentially leading to increased health risks. Similar to their male counterparts, female servicemembers must maintain their medical readiness; however, they have unique health care needs that require access to gender-specific services. This book examines the extent that the Department of Defense’s (DoDs) policies for assessing individual medical readiness include the unique health care issues of female servicemembers; the availability of health care services for female servicemembers on domestic Army installations; and the extent to which the DoD’s research organizations have identified a need for research on the specific health care needs of female servicemembers who have served in combat.
