From 08 to 10 June 2022, EATC hosted the seventh annual NPECC (National Patient Evacuation Coordination Centres) conference. After a Covid-19 induced interruption, this year’s meeting was again an excellent opportunity for the NPECCs’ and AECC’s* medical experts to come together at Eindhoven Air Base and discuss strategic aeromedical evacuation.
Brigadier General Gourg, Chief of Staff of EATC, stressed in his introductory speech that ”Multinational cooperation is crucial! I very much welcome that our member nations are increasing their collaborative efforts in the field of aeromedical evacuation, in particular in times of crisis. I am also pleased that we are now managing Italian and Spanish aeromedical evacuation missions.”
The conference closed with an exchange on new ways to enhance the multinational cooperation. Another successful conference for effective strategic aeromedical evacuation at EATC!
