Description:   The Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) provides worldwide Force Health Protection services to Naval and Joint forces in support of the National Military Strategy. They survey, consult, develop, and shape public health for the Navy and Marine Corps, working primarily with public health providers and policy makers in support of readiness for all Sailors and Marines. The NMCPHC executes the Naval Public Health mission by providing health readiness to operating forces and shore command stakeholders across the full range of military commands and civilian organizations in Navy, Marine Corps, and joint environments. Their customers include the Navy and Marine Corps Components of the Unified Combatant Commands (Africa Command, Central Command, European Command, Northern Command, Pacific Command, Southern Command, Special Operations Command, Strategic Command, and Transportation Command) and the Shore Based Commands (Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, Headquarters Marine Corps, Fleet Forces Command, Pacific Fleet Command, Marine Corps Combat Development Command, and BUMED). Health Readiness is provided through force health protection and risk mitigation capabilities to numerous customers that exist in these environments, including Naval vessels (ships and submarines); facilities (shore commands and barracks); troops (Sailors, Marines, Soldiers, and Airmen); Medical staff (Fleet and MTF—deployed and garrison), and DoD personnel (civilian and contractor). These categories of customers are located in organizations across the globe—from a ship in port in San Diego to a deployed regiment in Afghanistan.
