In a Wednesday, June 23 DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable, U.S. Air Force Col. Schuyler K. Gellar provided information about the Afghan National Security Forces health care system and his team’s role in helping to develop their medical capabilities to a self-sustaining level.
A major component of developing the health care system is increased recruiting. Doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals are needed. “The single largest obstacle to the development of the Afghan National Security Forces health care sector is lack of physicians,” Col. Geller, command surgeon and commander of the Medical Training Advisory Group, said.
