Abstract : This multi-study, programmatic project was directed to understanding the effects of the stress of combat, trauma, and extreme environments on women's health and performance. It identified critical health and performance issues related to women in the extreme environments of combat, peace-keeping, peace-making, humanitarian operations, and deployment. The project proceeded in three stages and addressed tri-service overlapping areas of the effects of these stressors in operational environments. Stage I: The development of a computer accessible database. Stage II: The analysis of already existing datasets. Stage III: A consensus meeting of experts and a series of seminars and written reviews of selected topics in order to address the data accumulated and formulate recommendations.
