The Committee is composed of representatives of the Society for Preserving the Health of the Jews (O.Z.E.) and of the Medical Department of the Joint Distribution Committee. Following the legalization of the Committee, the medical relief work of the O.Z.E. will be developed on a large scale in all the territories of the Soviet Republics.
