IPPNW is the only international medical organization dedicated to the abolition of nuclear weapons. Founded by US and Russian physicians in 1980, IPPNW is credited with raising public awareness about the devastating effects of nuclear weapons and with persuading American and Soviet leaders that the Cold War nuclear arms race was jeopardizing the survival of the entire world. IPPNW received the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of this accomplishment.

Today IPPNW mobilizes doctors, medical students, and concerned citizens in over 60 countries in the service of a broader war prevention mission. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) and Aiming For Prevention, IPPNW’s campaign to prevent armed violence worldwide, bring the expertise and compassion of doctors to bear on the whole human tragedy of armed conflict.

IPPW is fully in support of the World Harmony Pledge and shares the view that a new approach to human relations-particularly to conflict resolution -is essential if humanity is to survive.
