Infectious Disease

Our mission:

To provide effective and efficient Infectious Disease consultative care for U.S. military personnel, retirees, and other DoD beneficiaries throughout the EUCOM, AFRICOM, and CENTCOM areas of operation. We also provide a full-range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to investigate and treat Infectious Diseases and support the medical readiness for all units we serve.

We offer consultative services to deployed providers in EUCOM, AFRICOM and CENTCOM via Infectious Disease AKO Enterprise Email account (id.consult.army@mail.mil), HELP (https://help.nmcp.med.navy.mil/path/user/Login.jsp), and telephonically (available to be patched to the on call provider through LRMC information desk: +49 06371-9464-4100).
