This paper describes the Health Risk Management Matrix. This is a planning tool, developed at the Defence Medical Services Training Centre, to teach students how to develop and write a Medical Force Protection Plan. The tool covers 5 stages: hazard identification, identification of the population at risk, risk assessment, control measures (divided into information training and policy, medical counter-measures, and treatment) and monitoring activities. The paper provides a worked example using malaria as a hazard.
