This activity is deemed not ODA-eligible. This project concerns the provision of basic health care and specialised medical services to partner country military personnel that is not available in the partner countries. Although the assistance may be considered of a humanitarian nature, it is excluded from ODA on the ground that it consists in providing aid to the military in partner countries. This exclusion covers assistance directly benefitting counterpart military structure and other contributions linked to a specific defence effort e.g. assistance that contributes to the strengthening of the military or fighting capacity of the armed forces (paragraph 97). In this context, the intended health benefits are to these people as military actors and therefore considered part of regular military support to its human capacity rather than additional costs for use of military for development or humanitarian purposes.
