CIOMR's Principal Objectives
CIOMR, the Conféderation Interalliée des Officiers Médicaux de Reserve, was established in Brussels, Belgium, in 1947--one year before CIOR--as the official organization of medical officers in NATO's Reserve forces. Originally founded by Belgium, France and The Netherlands, the Confederation now includes all CIOR member counties. Its objectives are to:
To contribute positively to the organization and readiness of the military health services of NATO member nations, thereby enhancing their effective function both nationally and internationally.
Further, to promote in every possible way the standardization and interoperability of those medical services during peace or war.
To bring to the attention of the proper authorities of NATO recommendations and suggestions which, in the opinion of CIOMR, will improve the effectiveness of medical services provided by and for NATO forces.
To stimulate esprit de corps and mutual understanding between the Regular and Reserve Medical Forces within NATO.
To maintain a close liaison with national and international medical organizations.
CIOR and CIOMR are associated organizations. CIOMR holds its sessions at the same time and place as the CIOR summer congress and mid-winter conference, but prepares a separate agenda for the discussion of medical matters.
