Conference raises problem of blood during crises
A NATO medical conference to be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from 1 to 4 September 2003, will examine the prospects for integrating civil and military medical response capabilities.

Whether it is countering the effects of a terrorist attack with weapons of mass destruction or pushing forwarding crucial technical research, effective and efficient medical responses to health threats are crucial. As the medical community is a limited resource, it is paramount to avoid duplication of efforts and sharing of knowledge.

The conference will provide an opportunity for civil and military medical communities to discuss key topics such as diagnostics in the field, medical standardisation, disaster medicine, blood management and WMD threat.

The conference is open to all NATO and partner countries. It is organized by NATO’s Joint Medical Committee and hosted by the Government of Slovenia. More information and registration forms are available online at:
