Abstract

This is the last in a series of three papers that provide a discussion on the wider roles of military medical forces in stability operations. It examines the framework for civil-military co-operation in humanitarian operations and complex emergencies. It then introduces the non-military components of 'stability' operations and examines the military role in reconstruction and development. The paper examines the potential capabilities of military medical services in providing medical support for non-military populations, Village Medical Outreach Programmes and medical infrastructure projects.
