Summary
"It is now widely accepted that nations with healthy populations are more likely to be productive, prosperous, and peaceful. This matters to the United States because peaceful nations generally make good neighbors. Conversely, poor health indicators are usually a sign that something is not right in a society. Nations with high numbers of unhealthy citizens are more likely to be poor, badly governed, weak, and prone to instability or even conflict ... Military leaders who once viewed the world through a narrow security lens have become accustomed to building health plans and programs into their decisionmaking. Health professionals appreciate that their engagement can help enhance the security and the well-being of the communities with whom they interact ... [This volume collects] the personal stories of a selection of our nation's leading military and global health professionals. We approached some of the men and women whose decisions have helped shape our thinking on health and security during the past decade or so and asked them to reflect on their experiences. In particular, we asked them to consider the moments in their career when health and security-related considerations came together or collided with each other ... The interviews we conducted form the basis of each of the narratives that follow in this short volume."--Introduction
