The Congress will be hosted by the Armed Forces Medical Services, Ministry of Defence, India, in accordance with the statutes of the Secretariat General of the ICMM.

The central theme of the Congress is "Military Medicine in Transition: Looking Ahead". The broad subjects under the central theme are Terrain specific military medical support: challenges and solutions; Health protection and promotion in the military environment: experiences and best practices; Combat medical support: technological advances and implications; and Humanitarian aid and disaster relief: implications of a changing global scenario.

The congress will have simultaneous scientific sessions, poster presentations, round tables, panel discussions and workshops encompassing the broad themes. Eminent experts in the field of military medicine will deliver the keynote address and plenary talks.
