Military Medical Humanitarian Assistance (MMHAC) Course

Military Medical Humanitarian Assistance (MMHAC) Course

Date June 19 @ 7:45 am - June 20 @ 4:45 pm

The Military Medical Humanitarian Assistance Course (MMHAC) was created with the explicit goal of providing training for military primary care providers in preparing for and executing appropriate medical care to civilian populations in the austere health emergency setting. The content of this two-day course focuses on understanding the unique health environment, and recognizing and managing those conditions consistently associated with high mortality among the most vulnerable populations (primarily children) in these settings: diarrhea and dehydration, malnutrition, epidemic measles, malaria, and respiratory infections. Course scenarios focus on the role that US military medical assets would likely play as early responders to a humanitarian emergency with limited medical resources.
