NUCLEAR ABOLITION: Today there are still some 28,000 nuclear weapons in the world, and nuclear proliferation is on the rise. IPPNW launched the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) in 2007. The goal of ICAN is to reawaken public concern about the growing threat posed by nuclear weapons, and to mobilize civil society to demand a nuclear-weapon-free world through the negotiation and adoption of a Nuclear Weapons Convention.
AIMING FOR PREVENTION: CAMPAIGN TO PREVENT SMALL ARMS VIOLENCE
The goal of the campaign is to reduce and prevent injuries and death from small arms violence, and its effects on health, development and peace in the developing world. In Africa, Latin America, and South Asia, IPPNW is mobilising the unique expertise and authority of physicians and public health professionals to document the devastating human impact of small arms, educate key stakeholders, and advocate policy reform.
PEACE THROUGH HEALTH AND WAR PREVENTION. IPPNW seeks to understand the links between peace and health, to prevent the human suffering associated with militarism and war, and to promote diplomacy and non-violent resolution of conflict.
