Programs for children in military families

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Introduction: This article reviews representative programs for families and children from each NATO and Partnership for Peace (PfP) country with a representative participating in the NATO HFM RTG-258 task group on the impact of military life on children in military families. Methods: Each participating country was invited to submit up to three programs targeted at military-connected children and families. Results: 26 programs from nine countries were reviewed and categorized into 13 typologies. Discussion: The number of services offered in each country appeared to be influenced by size of the military, the degree to which military life is separate or immersed in civilian life, and the access to universal and preventive health care. Program descriptions for representative programs are included, as well as recommendations for program development, evaluation, and implementation.
