DoDI 2000.30 (Global Health Engagement Activities)

DoDI 2000.30 DoD's Global Health Engagement (GHE) activities advance operational readiness and protect our troops, build interoperability so we can work more effectively with the armed forces of our partner nations, and enhance security cooperation so DoD can establish and maintain strong relationships around the world.  A key enabler to regional stability and security for DoD's combatant commands, GHE reduces risks to U.S. armed forces while fostering mission capability of partner nations' forces so that together, we can continue working effectively to defend global interests.

Purpose: In accordance with the authority in DoD Directive (DoDD) 5111.1 and the November 30, 2006 Deputy Secretary of Defense Memorandum, this issuance:

• Establishes policy, assigns responsibilities, and prescribes procedures for the conduct of GHE activities with partner nation (PN) entities.

• Establishes the DoD GHE Council, and prescribes Council functions, responsibilities, membership, and procedures.

• Establishes the definition for GHE and is distinguished from the Global Health definition in accordance with the May 15, 2013 DoD GHE policy guidance; integrates health engagement language in the GHE definition consistent with Section 715 of Public Law 112-239.
