Joint Concept for Health Services (JCHS)

Joint Concept For Health Services (JCHS)

The Capstone Concept for Joint Operations: Joint Force 2020 (CCJO) envisions a globally postured Joint Force that can quickly combine capabilities in a future security environment that may be more unpredictable, complex, and potentially dangerous than today’s environment. These Globally Integrated Operations (GIO) will stress the Joint Force’s ability to provide health services for deployed forces and mission partners. The Joint Concept for Health Services (JCHS) responds to these challenges, describing how the future Joint Force will
provide health services in support of activities across the range of military operations.

Purpose and Scope

The JCHS seeks to apply the lessons learned from recent combat experiences as well as analysis of future concepts of operations (CONOPs) to shape future solutions to the many health-care challenges the Joint Force will face when conducting GIO. It applies to Combatant Commands, Services, the Joint Staff, and Combat Support Agencies and includes all medical components, active and reserve. While focused on Department of Defense (DoD) activities and capabilities, the concept acknowledges the likely participation of other interagency, foreign governmental, and nongovernmental mission partners during the conduct of military operations.
