The United Nation’s World Health Organisation has recognised the Israeli army’s field hospitals as “the number one in the world” in a ceremony last week.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has awarded the IDF’s field hospital team with the “Type 3” designation, a status that no medical team in the world has ever reached before.
More than that, they have awarded it as “Type 3” with some additional “specialised care” recognitions, making it no only the first to achieve the top rank, but the first to exceed it.
Dr. Ian Norton, the lead author for the classification system and head of the WHO organisation to Israel said on Wednesday last week said, “We’re going to recommend the director-general verifies [Israel’s team] as a Type 1, Type 2 and also Type 3 and multiple different types of speciality cells”.
He also added, “we haven’t had that ever before”.
A formal ceremony will be held in Hong Kong at the end of December and Israel will receive officials WHO patches for their uniforms to display the new designation.
Well done Israel!
