On the 20th of August, 2020, IPPNW and METO held a joint webinar targeted at stimulating disarmament initiatives from within the Middle East titled, “Building the movement of health workers to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe involving nuclear weapons”. The idea was inspired by the work of the original founders of IPPNW, Soviet and US physicians, who were among the first to recognise the catastrophic consequences of nuclear weapons on human health and the dangers they pose to human civilisation and even the very survival of human beings as a species. Almost 100 people from all over the world registered and well over 50% of them attended.

We are delighted by this new partnership we are forging with IPPNW and hope it will be the start of many such arrangements with other campaigns, networks and organisations.
