Protecting the health of our forces
NATO Deployment Health Surveillance Course - Level 1
Pilot Course, 11-15 November 2013, Marseille
Protecting the health of our troops is at least as important as any other support provided for our deployed forces to successfully carry out their mission. This is exactly why in 2010 the Deployment Health Surveillance Capability (DHSC) – a satellite branch of the NATO Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine (NATO MILMED COE) – was established in order to enable the epidemiological monitoring of the state of health of NATO forces and the early outbreak detection in the field. The DHSC's mission is to contribute to a better preparedness of the deployed NATO forces against the threats of infectious diseases and bioterrorist attacks.
For that reason the Budapest-based NATO MILMED COE in cooperation with the French Centre d’Epidémiologie et de Santé Publique des Armées (CESPA), Marseille, has developed a new course, the NATO Deployment Health Surveillance Course - Level 1. The pilot course took place on 11-15 November 2013 at CESPA, Marseille. The aim of the course is to brief the target audience on the current and future surveillance systems used on all NATO operations. This knowledge will enable medical personnel to have a broader understanding of and awareness about the importance of health surveillance and to use the existing health surveillance tools such as the EpiNATO-2 system, developed by DHSC, and the real-time early warning and surveillance system ASTER, developed by CESPA.
