The defense health strategy uses two methods of gaining access to national security: politics and community participation. A country’s political access through policies to improve its national territory as an asset to the nation’s resilience is the first and most important one.

Strengthening includes using geo-medical mapping to measure and research threats and outbreaks, as well as establishing a dedicated reporting and problem-solving structure to supplement regional defense and security. The second method is through community participation, which helps the national defense strategy become part of the local culture. By developing the concept of empowering community participation, a greater effort is placed on ensuring that all members of the community contribute and utilize their full capabilities.

Culture In the defense health strategy, which seeks to guide defense health initiatives, prioritizing support for the nation’s health insights that are enshrined in the country’s health policy is of primary importance. Community involvement becomes part of the expansion of the role of defense health, enabling community members to assume greater roles as agents of change within the linkage of community movement and health security internalization through programs developed in such communities. The strategic role of reform is an important component of defense politics because it impacts the constantly evolving dynamics of defense strategy. The concept of “agent of change” describes the capacity of the country’s spirit to act as a catalyst for societal progress by allowing the community to serve as a hidden engine for national defense. The imprinted strength is the establishment of 2 national security alliances, which are woven into protective health security.
