This September, Medact and the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) will bring together health professionals and peace activists to debate, educate and advocate for social justice and demilitarisation.

Across a series of expert-led panels, workshops and academic sessions, we will discuss ways to achieve health through peace – exploring topics from war and nuclear weapons, to the refugee crisis and climate change.

It has never been more important for the international health community to come together and fulfill our role in a changing, unstable world. This will be a unique opportunity to:

  • Join hundreds of progressive health professionals, students and peace activists;
  • Network with leading organisations in the fields of peace, health and nuclear abolition;
  • Take steps to put public health at the centre of the most pressing issues of our time;
  • Hear from high-profile speakers, including the Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu, President-Elect of the World Medical Association Dr. Yoshitake Yokokura, General Secretary at Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament Kate Hudson, and more.
