U.S. Army Public Health Command


The U.S. Army Public Health Command promotes health and prevents disease, injury and disability in Soldiers and retirees, their Families, and Army civilians, and provides veterinary services for the Army and Department of Defense.  USAPHC provides consulting services to senior military leaders, commanders both deployed and in garrison, and military medical and health professionals.

Headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., USAPHC has six subordinate elements, the Army Institute of Public Health and five Public Health Command Regions.

·         The AIPH, also located at Aberdeen Proving Ground, standardizes and promulgates practices and procedures used throughout the USAPHC, administers and funds public health mission execution, provides one-of-a-kind and reach-back technical capabilities, and oversees quality assurance.

·         The five Public Health Command Regions execute public health missions. They are supported by 14 Public Health Command Districts that will bring public health services even closer to the Army installations and deployed units who are their customers. USAPHC personnel are assigned in 14 time zones and in approximately 400 locations around the globe. Their professions include almost 70 scientific and technical disciplines, which are brought to bear on public health issues and problems in matrixed teams.

USAPHC is a subordinate command of the U.S. Army Medical Command. Through its unique mission and capabilities, USAPHC is helping Army Medicine transform to a prevention-focused system for health.
