Healthy Base Initiative

HBI Landing Page Banner Image

Obesity and tobacco use among U.S. military health care beneficiaries add over $3 billion per year to the Department of Defense (DoD) budget in health care costs and lost duty days. Failure to meet weight standards is a leading cause of involuntary separation from the military, and obesity in the civilian community may be limiting DoD's ability to recruit qualified personnel. To help combat this problem, military installations should provide environments which encourage good nutrition, active lifestyles, and tobacco-free living. The Office of Military Community and Family Policy, Office of the Secretary of Defense is carrying out the Healthy Base Initiative to help meet this need.
