[Correspondence] Treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons and Germany’s global health responsibility

The adoption of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons by the UN1 and the immediate support by 50 nations is, as Andy Haines and Helfand2 note, “a victory for the public health perspective over the misguided national power and security considerations that have dominated nuclear policy” for decades. Strong support for the treaty by countries with a commitment to global health is needed to safeguard humanity.
