About Medical Peace Work
The Medical Peace Work (MPW) partnership is built on a European network of medical peace organisations and teaching institutions that gathered during The Hague Appeal for Peace Conference in 1999 and the IPPNW World Congress in Paris in the 2000.
The MPW pilot project ran from 2005-2008 and the MPW transfer of innovation project (MPW2) from 2009-2012. In 2014, MPW went into a third project round.
The partnership represents a transnational cooperation between medical peace practitioners, peace and health researchers, teaching institutions, valorisation partners and final users of the project’s outcomes.
About the free case collection
The goals of Medical Peace Work are to prevent violence, and promote peace, human rights and human security. This is an emerging field of expertise that draws on a commitment to the life, health and wellbeing of patients in the face of enormous suffering and misery caused by war and human rights violations.
The free cases are intended to be used as the basis for group work and class discussion in formal and informal educational settings for health professionals and their students. Teaching notes are available for teachers and trainers. MPW also offers online teaching resources for medical peace education.
