Abstract

The US military in conjunction with allied military services and nongovernmental organizations have embarked on various humanitarian missions to underserved areas worldwide. These missions illustrate what interoperability between nations can accomplish. Dermatologists involved with humanitarian missions encounter many conditions rarely seen in developed countries and learn to practice general dermatology with limited resources in austere environments.
