The Inspector of Public Health, Doctor General Dr. Baumgärtner, has made initial considerations. And, before that, the reorientation towards an army in the defense of the country and the alliance, which has shaped the Bundeswehr for seven years. In the second case, the medical service is already breaking new ground.
The Bundeswehr and in particular the forces of the Bundeswehr Central Medical Service have been deployed almost worldwide in the last 30 years and will continue to be considered for deployment within the framework of political processes in the future.

The medical service must increasingly be viewed as an independent effector and thus as an instrument of security policy action.
