Analysis of the National Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic Through the Lens of Medical Military Support Requirements [open pdf - 0B]
From the Introduction: "The aim of this Open Publication for Allied Command Transformation is to examine national responses, both civil and military, to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and especially the coordination function between them. It will look at the strategic directions that nations have taken, including the NATO partner nations. It will also include the experiences and comparisons of the non-NATO nations of Russia, China, and Brazil as they present a differing strategic approach to NATO and western nations. The paper will support further analysis of current and future capabilities required of military medical services, especially how this pandemic compares to large scale warfighting operations. It will identify areas of similarity and differences within and between nations that could inform future conceptual and novel capability development. This will support future conceptual and capability development of military medical support for NATO."
