Military and civilian medicine and healthcare have different aims and priorities but are often closely linked. On the one hand, civilian health infrastructure, and the health status of the population as a whole, directly affect military health and healthcare. On the other, the military has played a significant part in shaping the landscape of health epidemiologically as well as through its contributions to medical science and healthcare systems. Deployed forces have also attempted to use medical interventions to positively influence the operational environment and to foster political stability. This workshop re-assesses some of these intersections between civilian and military domains. Its aim is to understand the role that medicine has played historically in conflict situations, as well as to explore some of the ways in which historical insights might be applied to ongoing and future situations.
Spaces are very limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
