U.S. Air Force Surgeon General Lt. Gen. (Dr.) Charles B. Green, along with the surgeons general of Australia, Canada and Great Britain, recently signed an international "Interfly" Proclamation of Understanding. The agreement is intended to promote and support mutual cooperation and interoperability of the aeromedical evacuation assets between nations. Since 2009, there has been an informal agreement to clear medical equipment on each other's similar aircraft. However, the formal proclamation will now allow the nations' medical teams to use aircraft and work alongside each other.
