Prevention is the only cure: Public health case for nuclear disarmament November 30, 2023 at 1:15pm - 2:30pm Eastern Time (US & Canada) Conference Room B UN Headquarters 405 E 45th St New York, NY 10017 United States Contact person: Molly McGinty

IPPNW will join in conversation with a coalition of the world’s largest medical and public health organizations — the International Committee of the Red Cross, International Council of Nurses, International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations, World Federation of Public Health Associations, and the World Medical Association — on the margins of the second Meeting of States Parties to the TPNW.

Echoing the August 2023 joint editorial from 153 Medical and Health Journals on the unique role health professionals must play in warning world leaders and the public of the risks of nuclear war, representatives from leading health organizations will gather with one voice to advance the eradication of nuclear weapons through evidence-based policy-making. Participants will leave the interactive session with increased knowledge on the humanitarian impacts of nuclear weapons and a toolkit to take action in their local communities.
