No Place to Hide: Nuclear Weapons and the Collapse of Health Care Systems February 17, 2022

The atomic bombing of Hiroshima devastated the city’s health care infrastructure. Hence PSR’s motto: “Prevention is the only cure.” On February 10, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) — recipient of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize — released a brand new report: No Place to Hide: Nuclear Weapons and the Collapse of Health Care Systems, which estimates the immediate impact of the detonation of just one modern-sized nuclear weapon over ten cities around the world (all the nuclear-armed states plus Germany, which hosts American nuclear weapons.) The result would be a humanitarian catastrophe: their health care systems would be completely overwhelmed. Please read ICAN’s new report, get it into the hands of decision-makers, and when you are ready to take further action with PSR’s Nuclear Weapons Abolition Program, reach out to its director, Martin Fleck ~
