Many recent operations have highlighted the problem of hazard exposure in troops.
This is a difficult area since it depends upon both post-deployment and possibly mid-deployment health surveillance and crosses the traditional limits of occupation and public health medicine.
Health surveillance is itself a term which straddles occupational and public health medicine.
For the military population at risk on operations, a combined approach is required incorporating the separate activities of needs and risk assessments.
There is an existing vehicle to develop this approach using the new J95 methodology.
Equally, a system of data access crossing medical and personnel records is necessary.
The important requirement is that health surveillance is included in pre-deployment planning.
Only by this method can adequate resources and significance be accorded to appropriate health surveillance strategies both during and following an operation as required.
