Abstract : A meeting, the 'Forum on the Health of Women in the Military' was held 17-19 June 1996 at The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Prior to the meeting we commissioned papers to review selected topics to be addressed at the meeting. These reviews were distributed to the participants of the conference before the meeting and served as background materials for discussions at the meeting itself. The purpose of this process was to allow a wider distribution of the available information to those caring for the health of women in the military and to those making policy affecting these women. The proceedings of the meeting, including the commissioned papers and edited transcripts of all the talks, are submitted in this report.
