The true health and environmental legacies of the Chernobyl disaster
MEDACT Conference for the 20th Anniversary of Chernobyl
Saturday 22 April 2006
The Royal College of Surgeons, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London
Chernobyl is, by a considerable margin, the world’s worst industrial catastrophe. A 600-page IAEA/WHO report published in September 2005 has estimated that more than 4,000 people will die from radiation exposures caused by the accident. However independent assessments indicate this is a considerable underestimate. This conference will provide an opportunity to find out about Chernobyl’s true impact – including deaths so far, expected deaths, illnesses, and psychosocial and environmental effects. It will also indicate how members of the public can give practical help to the children and their families who will continue to suffer from the ill-effects of Chernobyl for many decades to come.
