NATO Medical Experts Visit Armenia
Brunssum, the Netherlands - From 11 to 15 June a team from JFC Brunssum, supported by the NATO Medical Centre of Excellence (COE) in Budapest, conducted an Expert Team Visit (ETV) to Armenia, on the subject of Military Medicine.
Over 3 days the team, comprising Lieutenant Commander Michelle Ward from JFC Brunssum's Military Parntership Branch, Lieutenant Colonel Jahara Bvlgari from the HQs' Medical Branch, and Navy Captain Jack Taylor from the COE, provided a range of briefings in the Military Hospital, and Military Medical Training Centre, both in the Armenian capital city of Yerevan. Topics included the NATO's Medical Planning Process, Medical Treatment Facilities, and Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support.
The event was very well received by an unusually large audience of both military and civilian medical professionals. Four further ETVs to Armenia are scheduled to take place later this year.
