A Project of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War’s (IPPNW) Aiming for Prevention Program

IPPNW’s Aiming for Prevention program seeks to mobilize health professionals worldwide in a coordinated effort to document the public health impact of armed violence, to educate on the human dimensions and societal costs of violence, and to contribute a public health perspective to policy reforms that reduce gun injury and death. It is a health and human-centered approach that harnesses the tools of public health to address a global crisis that creates untold human suffering.

IPPNW’s new “Medical Voices Against Violence” project is collecting stories of personal experiences with violence, especially gun violence, from IPPNW members and other heath professionals. We will use these stories to educate others about the human costs of violence via IPPNW’s “Aiming for Prevention” campaign.

International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War is a recipient of the 1985 Nobel Peace prize and is a worldwide organization with affiliates in 60 countries. Go to http://www.ippnw.org for more information.
