Supporting Those Who Have Given So Much: Army Medical Action Plan Update

September 6, 2007

Soldiers returning from war should not have to fight antiquated bureaucracies to obtain health care and other services they require while in a hospital or during their recovery transition. Military leaders understand and are committed to a new plan of action.

The Army Medical Action Plan (AMAP) is an Army initiative to develop a sustainable system wherein wounded, injured and ill Soldiers are medically treated and rehabilitated to prepare them for successful return to duty or transition to their homes and communities.

The AMAP establishes an integrated and comprehensive continuum of care and services for Warriors in Transition— those warriors who are receiving medical treatment at Army medical treatment facilities as they transition back to active duty or out of military service. The continuum involves their family members, Veterans Affairs and civilian health care providers.
