Building Bridges: Resources


IPPNW has a long record of accomplishment in promoting international dialogue and cooperation.  IPPNW physicians, health workers and medical students come together as healers – regardless of nationality, ideology or religious orientation – in pursuit of a more peaceful, healthier world without the threat of nuclear destruction.  This work is taking place in some of the most volatile regions of the world.

The National Library of Medicine exhibition opened in conjunction with the 60th anniversary of the World Health Organization, and IPPNW’s story is part of a theme on health and peace in "From Conflict to Consensus."

Atomic Photographers Guild

Members of the Atomic Photographers Guild aim to capture the heft, grit and impact of the nuclear age  — an age that has altered the course of human history but exists so covertly that most people think of the Bomb as an abstraction. The Guild works to release its images in books, on walls, and over the web so others can piece together the fragments of what could be our darkest, most enduring legacy. Those who attended the Basel Congress will recall the powerful photographic installation: "The Bomb Among Us" by photographer Robert Del Tredici. [WEBSITE]
