Physicians for Social Responsibility, Bangladesh (PSR-B) is an affiliated organization of IPPNW (International Physician for Prevention Nuclear War). Working with IPPNW affiliated organizations throughout the world, doctors show by example what can be achieved through international cooperation, and they provide a powerful voice in the global movement to promote peace and justice for all.
Though Bangladesh has no nuclear plant and weapon of mass destruction but small arms, violence, muscle power keeps us always in threat. These can have a variety of physical consequences, including long-term or even permanent disability. However, the health consequences of violence and social instability go beyond the physical effects of an injury, particularly when it is remembered that the definition of health is “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. Especially when the affected individuals are poor, the costs and tensions resulting from changed economic circumstances can lead to the disintegration of the family or the generation of more violence within it.See More
