Building Trust Through Health Care


Military professionals have a stake in the well-being of their fellow citizens. One way military personnel can show their commitment is through medical civic action programs (MEDCAP). These programs typically are conducted during joint or multilateral training and peacekeeping missions. They serve as temporary field clinics to provide medical services to local populations. On August 31, 2022, Ghana Armed Forces personnel from 6 Infantry Battalion participated in a MEDCAP in Yendi, Ghana, where Soldiers such as this Ghanaian nurse performed eye exams and other services.
