Description
The 35th Session of the International Office of Documentation on Military Medicine is held in Seoul under the auspies of the Ministry of National Defense during the period from April 25 through 29,1977, with the delegates from nearly 120 countries attending. During the five-day meeting the Republic of Korea is expected to show off her high status in the international community, especially in the field of National Security and Military Medicine.

The Headquarters of the International Committee of Military Medicine and Pharmacy, situated in Brussels, the capital city of Belgium, was organized in 1921 at the initiative of such counries as the United States of America, Great Britain and Belgium with the following purposes in mind: *Mutual cooperation based on the spirit of the geneva convention. *Academic exchange and fellowship among the military medical services of various countries. *Improvement of salvation of the war-wounded.

Korea was admitted to this Committee as a regular member state in November 1954, and our representatives have participated in almost all the meetings of this international medical organization ever since. The current session is the first of its kind to be held in Asia, since the Bangkok conference of 1965.

In the hope that the internationl event will further accelerate the developmetnt to military medicine and pharmacy, thus contributing a great deal to the prosperity and national defense of our fatherland, the Ministry of Communications is issuing this commemorative postage stamp.
