Abstract : Recent military deployments have brought to light unique medical and health issues for female service members. In response, USACHPPM and USAMRMC have produced this handbook addressing women's medical and health issues. This guide will assist in preparing the female soldier for deployment, maintaining her health and performance during deployment, and facilitating mission accomplishment. This document does not replace policy and doctrine established by Department of Defense or Department of Army or their subordinates, contained in Technical Bulletins and other official publications, but attempts to provide solutions or guidance based on lessons learned and current trends.
