The military operation ALTHEA in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) was launched on 2 December 2004 and has contributed to the maintenance of the safe and secure environment in Bosnia and Herzegovina ever since. In the framework of Operation ALTHEA, the EU initially deployed 7000 troops, to ensure continued compliance with the General Framework Agreement for Peace (GFAP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina and to contribute to a safe and secure environment. In light of the improving security situation, Operation ALTHEA has been reconfigured four times, most recently in September 2012.
