Abstract The large mobilization of women during the Persian Gulf War (PGW) and the increasing proportion of women in the armed forces in general have raised numerous concerns regarding the availability and adequacy of, and satisfaction with care within the military health care community. Shortly following the PGW, we began a study to describe and monitor the health and well-being of a sample of women who were in military service during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. To gain background information on the prior health of these women, we asked them about their health problems for the entire period of their military careers up to the present. In addition, we gathered information about where they sought medical care for their reported health problems, and their levels of satisfaction with the services received. The purpose of this study is to report the prevalence of gender-specific health problems of a randomized sample of women, their rate of health care utilization, and their satisfaction with military and civilian care during their military career to enable us to provide baseline health information about women who served in the PGW.
