Abstract

Reprinted here are three documents issued by the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) after its Third Congress, held in the Netherlands in June 1983. The documents are: "An Appeal to the Chairman of the Presidium of the USSR Supreme Soviet and to the President of the United States"; a "Proposed Adaptation for the Nuclear Age of the Hippocratic Oath and Other Medical Oaths"; and a petition, "The International Physicians' Call for an End to the Nuclear Arms Race." The petition will be circulated internationally and presented after the next IPPNW congress to leaders of nations possessing nuclear weapons.
