englischThe health of the military is of central importance both from an internal perspective as well as in terms of a state’s response capacities. This anthology looks at these issues in five chapters: Starting from the basics of health in the military (saluto genesis, differential health promotion, the instrumentality of military medicine), the various contributions it contains deal with the daily challenges of staying healthy in the military (the function and expectations of the members of the organisation, concepts to ensure one’s health, food in the military, inclusivity and aspects of sexual harassment). Health during missions is particularly important (the preservation of mental health, palliative medical care, rehabilitation after a mission). The book also looks at the INVICTUS Games and, in the end, explores questions relating to healthy leadership by examining problem-solving concepts in sports, referring to an empirical study and comparing leadership practices and health in business and the military.
