IPPNW World Congresses are important opportunities for health professionals, medical students, and activists to share information and strategies related to the abolition of nuclear weapons and the prevention of armed violence. World Congresses are hosted by national IPPNW affiliates, who share responsibility with the Federation’s leadership for developing the program and handling all the logistics.

The 2020  IPPNW Congress, themed Disarmament, Development and Health, is a joint event of IPPNW with the Kenyan affiliate.
