International Conference

Warrior Care Symposium 2020 

6 and 7 May, The Hague, The Netherlands



W21 Objective

The Warrior Care in the 21st Century (WC21) coalition facilitates global sharing of best practice and lessons learned in the field of military health care.
The intent of the WC21 Symposium is to enable partnering nations the opportunity to exchange information, develop, and validate workable solutions to short- and long-term challenges surrounding the resilience, recovery and rehabilitation, and reintegration of our wounded, ill and injured Service members.



History of W21

Four WC21 Symposiums have previously been conducted; in Bethesda USA in 2015, Tampa USA in 2016, Toronto Canada in 2017, and in Sydney Australia in 2018, and have coincided with the Invictus Games. Each symposium has progressively been built upon in order to maximise information sharing, learn new concepts, and develop feasible solutions to future care challenges, through workshopping.
The nations that have attended the three previous symposiums have varied and have included: Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, India, Italy, Jordan, Lithuania, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Romania, Sri Lanka, and Ukraine.
