WHO WE ARE
The Peace Caucus in affiliation with the American Public Health Association (APHA) was founded in 1985 to educate and engage the influential voice of public health professionals in efforts to promote peace. Through outreach and educational activities, we strive to illuminate that peace and social justice are key determinants of the health of individuals and communities across the globe
WHAT WE DO
Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
Peace Caucus members organize scientific programs at APHA’s annual meeting, develop policies, disseminate information and conduct other activities that highlight the public health impacts of war, conflict and other forms of violence and the essential role of health professionals in prevention. Our activities illustrate the need for peaceful and just environments so that populations can thrive.
