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.

Delegates from over 50 states in the world will gather in Mombasa, Kenya to discuss and strategize on the relationship between different forms and stages of conflict and climate change as determinants of our overall health and survival.

Together with a range of like-minded partners, IPPNW creates an intense 3 day platform for medical professionals and other interested parties to discuss and learn more about:

Sub Themes


Nuclear weapons and health

Energy choices, nuclear power, uranium mining


Militarism, development and health


TPNW Entry into force


Climate change, climate justice and health
