  • The ICMM is a point of convergence, the only one of its kind in the world, according to the number of its Member-states (more than one hundred), its field of competence only focused on technical topics and its strict neutrality.
    If the military Medical Service of each Member-state shares its own technical improvements and learned lessons,
    the sharing of these knowledge will shed light on the medical, surgical and public health process of all the Member-states.
    So, the key-word for ICMM is communication, because communication is the best way to improve the efficiency of this convergence point.
