Abstract : Humanitarian assistance and disaster relief are ways for operational commanders to maintain peace, security and stability throughout the world. Military medicine is faced with the challenge of finding new ways to increase its joint capabilities to support the operational commanders during future humanitarian assistance missions. The Joint Mission Essential Task List (JMETL) is a powerful new planning process that can provide a basis for medical planners and decision makers from all services to think about long-range joint medical missions, and ultimately, future joint capabilities. Operational commanders can use the Joint Training Master Plan to integrate medical elements into their structure. Joint readiness can exist only when all forces, combat and medical, anticipate their missions, then plan, train and prepare for their execution.
