Abstract : Health problems in the Sub-Saharan African regions could defeat peace efforts and/or reconstruction efforts. This is particularly true in the underdeveloped areas. Several factors are considered: possible pathological effects of tropical climate, communicable disease control, water and food supply, waste disposal, control of mass psychological reactions to death and devastation logistics, and coordinating procedures with other arms and services, and with governmental and private agencies. The situation as examined is non-nuclear, and deals primarily with immediate post conflict problems.
