Wars, armed conflicts, and humanitarian crises around the world have devastating effects for the physical and mental health & well-being of populations. The consequences are multifaceted, long-lasting, and exacerbate existing inequities. The negative implications of these conflicts and forced displacement disproportionately burden vulnerable and marginalized communities. Everyone has the right to live a safe and healthy life. Peace is public health for everyone, everywhere. You can download the Peace is Public Health graphic in both square and circle versions, and tag @aspphorg and @ASPPHtweets if you share them on social media.
