ORG is proud to be one of the partners of the Medact Forum 2015, Health Through Peace: Confronting War, Militarisation and Global Insecurity. Held at Friends House, London over two days, the event will include a ‘Teach-In’ on contemporary conflict issues on Friday 13 November and the Medact Forum on 14 November.
