The Immediate Dangers of Nuclear War: consequences for, and responsibilities of the health professions Other events...
A public lecture by Dr Sue Wareham, Medical Association for Prevention of War

Many consider that the danger of nuclear conflict is as high now as it has ever been; worse, current simulations indicate that even a ’small’ nuclear conflict will produce not only catastrophic humanitarian consequences, but long-lasting effects on climate and food supplies. The Medical Association for Prevention of War, through its international arm The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) has led the push for the UN to make nuclear weapons illegal, a successful, if first, step in their eradication.

Dr Sue Wareham is a Canberra GP who joined the Medical Association for Prevention of War out of a “horror at the destructive capacity of a single nuclear weapon”. She is Vice-President of the Medical Association for Prevention of War (Australia); and on the Australian Management Committee of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.

This lecture is presented by the Institute of Advanced Studies and the The Medical Association for Prevention of War (Australia). The MAPW works for the elimination of all weapons of mass destruction and the prevention of armed conflict.
