Author information

  • 1Israel Defense Forces Medical Corps, Tel-Hashomer.


The Israeli civilian-military health services contingency program for mass and wartime casualties has more than four decades of experience. The contingency program includes key civilian and military organizations that are involved in the planning, policy making and delivery of health care and support services to the wounded. During the Persian Gulf war the unified civilian and military command--the supreme hospitalization authority--implemented a national hospital and emergency medical services preparedness system designed to treat the victims of chemical warfare attacks.
