Health Hazard Assessment (HHA)

The HHA Project manages the pre-deployment training for Forward Deployable Preventive Medicine Units (FDPMU), as well as public health physicians, scientists and technicians ensuring that Navy Medicine personnel are able to deploy and provide valuable operational risk management advice.

HHAs are conducted to determine if environmental contaminates from current and prior land use, disease vectors, or other environmental conditions exist at deployment sites that could pose health risks to deployed personnel. They identify industrial facility operations, and/or commodities on and near a deployment site that, if destroyed, damaged, or released could result in catastrophic health risk to deployed forces. Our Health Hazard Assessment (HHA) project is managed by our Expeditionary Platforms department.
