ASEAN launches center of military medicine

BANGKOK, 8 April 2016 – The ASEAN Center of Military Medicine (ACMM) was officially launched in Bangkok, Thailand yesterday to drive regional efforts in pursuing cooperation in the area of  military medicine. The Center would also develop joint medical response plans, assess medical needs in crisis situation, as well as  conduct training courses and researches in emergency medical services.

In his remarks at the Opening Ceremony of the ACMM, the Secretary-General of ASEAN, H.E. Le Luong Minh, emphasized that the launching of the center is a testament to the aspiration of ASEAN Member States to promote practical cooperation among the medical services of the region’s militaries.

As military medicine is a crucial area during disasters, Secretary-General Minh also mentioned that, with a specific niche on military medical collaboration, the ACMM will add value to the overall humanitarian assistance and disaster relief framework of the region. The ACMM would also complement the work of the ASEAN Coordination Centre for Humanitarian Assistance in improving the region’s response and coordination mechanisms.

The establishment of the ACMM is a fulfillment of one of the immediate actions under the ASEAN Political Security Community (APSC) Blueprint 2025, adopted by the ASEAN Leaders in last November .

The ACMM was launched by H.E. Prawit Wongsuwon, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence of Thailand. The ceremony was attended by Secretary-General Minh, representatives from the ASEAN Member States and ASEAN Dialogue Partners, including  Australia, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation and the United States, as well as other honored dignitaries.
