IPPNW is holding its 19th World Congress — “Nuclear Abolition: For a Future” — in Basel, Switzerland from 25-30 August 2010. More than 600 doctors, medical students, activists, and concerned citizens will gather at the University of Basel to assess progress in the federation’s global campaigns to rid the world of nuclear weapons and to prevent armed violence.

More than a dozen participants will be blogging during the five-day event. You can read their reports and commentaries here and participate in the conversation yourself as events unfold in Basel.
