In 2022, an important event took place, the 160th anniversary of the Romanian army’s assembly of medical officers. It was founded on August 21, 1862. At the same time, the General Directorate of the Romanian Sanitary Service was created. Both entities were funded based on a decree signed by Ruling Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza (1820-1873). Their aim was to assist the health of Romanian army soldiers, in peacetime and in wartime (as recorded in the press release of the Health Ministry of August 21, 2022, press statement entitled ‟Military Medicine Day”).
