H2F is a capabilities-based, task and environment focused, Human Performance Optimization (HPO) program. HQDA EXORD 149-19 directs the Total Army to implement the H2F System. For the Active Component (AC), H2F provides Soldiers direct access to specialized medical and mental health care providers, athletic trainers, and strength coaches at the brigade level. The ARNG model will not mirror the AC model, while still accomplishing the desired end state of improving physical fitness, injury avoidance and recovery, nutritional health, and mental/spiritual resilience.
The ARNG achieves H2F Systems goals of improving Soldier readiness and lethality, optimizing physical/non-physical performance, reducing injury rates, improving rehabilitation after injury, and increasing overall effectiveness through a Directorate enabled and State/Territory led approach which accounts for ARNG unique requirements, opportunities, constraints. The ARNG will accomplish this through a blend of material solutions, subject matter expertise, federal and state resources, and health care professionals.
