As the next generation of health professionals, IPPNW medical students are already safeguarding the planet’s health.
Working with IPPNW affiliated organizations throughout the world, medical students show by example what can be achieved through international cooperation, and they provide a powerful voice in the global movement to promote peace and justice for all.

IPPNW affiliates are national medical organizations with a common commitment to the abolition of nuclear weapons and the prevention of war. Affiliates range in size from a handful of dedicated physicians and medical students to tens of thousands of activists and their supporters. As independent organizations within a global federation, IPPNW affiliates engage in a wide variety of activities related to war, health, social justice, and the environment.
IPPNW works closely with other NGOs, coalitions, civil society organizations, and international agencies concerned with nuclear weapons and nuclear war; armed violence; and the relationships between international security, health and development.
