Abstract

This chapter reviews representative programs for families and children from each NATO and Partnership for Peace (PFP) Country with a representative participating in the task group on The Impact of Military Life on Children in Military Families. Each participating country was invited to submit up to three programs targeted at military-connected children and families. The number of services offered in each country appeared to be influenced by size of the military, the degree to which military life is separate or immersed in civilian life, and the access to universal and preventive healthcare. Program descriptions for representative programs are included, as well as recommendations for program development, evaluation and
implementation.
