We conduct preventive medicine and communicable disease control, occupational health, food safety, deployment medicine, and disaster response programs. The purpose of the Air Force Occupational and Environmental Health, or OEH, program is to protect health while enhancing combat and operational capabilities. It seeks to identify, assess and eliminate or control health hazards associated with day-to-day operations. Service members who are part of the OEH program can receive medical surveillance examinations and follow-up care. The Community Health Program strives to protect the military, dependents and beneficiary populations from infectious and communicable diseases, food-borne illnesses, and environmental hazards that may adversely impact the health of the community and degrade operational performance. Focus areas and services include: communicable diseases, food protection, sanitation and medical entomology.
