Health through Peace conference
September 4, 2017 - September 6, 2017
Medact Forum and IPPNW World Congress. Confronting War, Militarisation and Global Insecurity as an International Health Community.
In September 2017, Medact and the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) are bringing together health and peace organisations from across the world to debate, educate and advocate for peace-building, social justice, and demilitarisation. We will be discussing the root causes of war, conflict and violence across expert-led panels, workshops and academic sessions.
Health Through Peace 2017 provides a unique opportunity for delegates to join hundreds of health care providers, students and peace activists at the University of York. Across a three-day programme, you will have the chance to network with key organisations and leaders in the fields of peace, health and nuclear abolition.
