AIM

The aim of this document is to set the basis for the creation of standardized component modules of personnel and equipment able to be rearranged, replaced, combined and interchanged easily in order to create Multinational Medical Treatment Facilities (MTFs) able to meet specific operational requirements. To achieve this, each Multinational MTF must function under the coordination of a Lead Nation (LN) and be made up of modules provided by other Nations (Contributing Nations - CNs) with various degrees of participation. Possible LN and CNs responsibilities are depicted further in this document. The resulting Multinational MTFs can be employed across the whole spectrum of operations, including warfighting, deterrence, contingency operations, peacetime engagement, crisis response and humanitarian relief. This will help to provide to NATO the means to:

  • Mitigate Role 2 shortfalls;
  • Improve multinationality and partnerships;
  • Enhance multinational medical engagement;
  • Meet specific operational requirements; and
  • Improve standards of care and interoperability.

The document has been built on the work carried out in the context of the SD Project Tier 1.15 and takes into account the principles set out at Reference C. Furthermore, it refers to the Role 2 Basic, Role 2 Enhanced and Role 3 Medical Treatment Facilities as described at Reference D,
