Homeland Security and Defense Center

Military Health Policy Research

More than 9 million active duty, Reserve, and retired military personnel along with their dependents are eligible to receive health care through the U.S. Department of Defense's (DoD's) Military Health System. In addition, nearly 6 million veterans receive health care benefits and services from the Veterans Health Administration. The goal of RAND's military health research—conducted by RAND Health, the RAND Arroyo Center, and the RAND National Defense Research Institute—is to help the DoD and VA meet the challenges of providing the best care possible to this diverse population, while containing costs.

Resilience in Action

Resilient communities withstand and recover from disasters. They also learn from past disasters to strengthen future recovery efforts. The Resilience in Action website offers toolkits, training, multimedia, newsletters, and other resources to help communities build and strengthen their resilience.
