As long as nuclear weapon states maintain nuclear arsenals, the question is not whether there will be a catastrophic release of nuclear radiation and hundreds of thousands of deaths, it is a case of when.

Physicians for Global Survival in affiliation with International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War IPPNW is participating in the development and promotion of a Model Nuclear Weapons Convention, called “International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons” (ICAN)

Through International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, more than 230,000 physicians from 144 countries are united to abolish the threat of nuclear weapons.

Physicians for Global Survival works in partnership with other like-minded organizations, such as Mayors for Peace in the pursuit of a nuclear weapons free world.
