International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW)
To create a basis for evaluating conflicts, IPPNW asked experienced authors to extensively review scientific studies and other data on the numbers of victims of the larger wars waged under the political concept of “War on Terror”: Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. It was aimed to evaluate the human cost of a political program, the number of casualties thereby being a prime indicator of the humanitarian condition and the healthcare situation. After an estimated cost of at least $3 mln over a decade of warfare, we need to fully account for our responsibility and learn the appropriate lessons.
