10th ICMM Course for Health Support in Saharan Environment


Tozeur, South of Tunisia
March 7-11, 2022


Welcome message


Dear colleagues and friends,

We are honored and pleased to announce that Tunisian Military Health General Directorate organizes, under the aegis of the ICMM, the 10th International Course for Health Support in Saharan Environment during the period from March 07-11, 2022 in Tozeur.

The desert is a particularly hostile environment to humans and also to physician practicing in such area. It’s known for its extreme weather conditions, its particular field, and its flora and fauna varieties. Difficulties are often encountered during water management and when supporting its various diseases.

This course, highly requested by national and international scientific community, is becoming a real specialized training on the Saharan diseases. It is very enriching for the participants coming to extend their knowledge and share their experiences in the field of medical support in extreme conditions. In order to guarantee a better immersion in the Saharan area, workshops relating to surviving in such area are planned.

This event earns in interest since numerous humanitarian crises were observed these last few years in Saharan areas. These crises were responsible of refugees’ influx requiring military health service deployments for assistance.

This course will bring together distinguished national and international speakers from civilian and military partners’ institutions. It is also a pleasant occasion to discover the wonderful natural sites of southern Tunisia.

We invite you to take part to this course and we are looking forward to host you and representatives from your country in the beautiful city of Tozeur, the doors of Tunisian desert.


Major General (MD - Pr) Mustapha FERJANI
Surgeon General of Tunisian Armed Forces
