Słowa kluczowe:veteran, The Republic of Estonia, veteran care system, war
Due to the nature of contemporary armed conflicts and the resulting operations, the “problem” of the new social group, which has traditionally been called “veterans”, was born. It was a reasonable duty of the states to provide assistance to injured and wounded (damage to physical and mental health) soldiers returning from military operations abroad and their families. The introduction of the Act of 19 August 2011 on Foreign Mission Veterans has initiated the possibility of building a system of care for veterans in Poland. As it is strived to create the right care system, it is important to analyze, how other countries have solved this problem. Therefore, the cognitive goal of this publication is the identification and explanation of the assumptions of the functioning of the veteran care system in the Republic of Estonia. In addition, in view of the utilitarian objective – the use of the Estonian system of care to determine the base of the quality changes of the veteran care system in Poland – it is carried out
a SWOT analysis of the discussed system.
