A Strategic Path Forward to Address the Invisible Wounds of War
Since 9/11, over 2.8 million U.S service members have deployed overseas. More than 52,000 have been wounded, but over 6 times that number may be facing challenges with the invisible wounds of war, including traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress. There are numerous organizations - in both the public and private sector - that are doing tremendous work to address the need for access to, and delivery of, high quality care. There is an opportunity however, at the national level, to help foster a combined focus in support of: Increasing numbers in effective care, improving the delivery of care; Maintaining awareness of the invisible wounds and their consequences; and Continuing efforts for more precise diagnostics and pharmaceutical resources. To help facilitate this opportunity and to articulate a strategic path forward, the Military Service Initiative produced "Combating the Invisible Wounds, Creating a Collaborative Tomorrow."
