Force Health Protection

Force health protection is one of the U.S. Army’s most critical priorities. The Army has a responsibility to keep the forces medically ready and protected from health and safety threats, both on and off-duty.

The Army has robust capabilities, processes and systems to increase unit and individual health and safety measures, including, but not limited to:

  • Army Wellness Centers (AWCs) provide standardized prevention programs to promote healthy lifestyles and improve the overall wellbeing of Army personnel and families by leveraging state-of-the-art techniques and equipment.

  • Performance Triad (P3) strengthens individual readiness and optimizes performance of the Total Army Family through the combination of sleep, physical activity and proper nutrition.

  • Field Manual 7-22, Holistic Health and Fitness, establishes the Army’s doctrine for the readiness training of Soldiers. The goal of the Holistic Health and Fitness (H2F) System is building physical lethality and mental toughness to win quickly and return home healthy.

  • The Army Public Health Center releases a series of periodic publications and surveillance reports, including the annual Health of the Force Report and Health of the Army Family Report.

  • The Army’s Combat Readiness Center provides the Joint Risk Assessment Tool, Travel Risk Planning System, and the Army Readiness Assessment Program to assist leaders and Soldiers gain a comprehensive assessment of their risk and safety culture.
