Peace Caucus

The Peace Caucus (Est. 1985) provides a focal point for individuals committed to social justice and creation of peace worldwide. 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.

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.
