On July 8, 1998 in Cardiff the British Medical Association passed a resolution stating:

“That this meeting considers it a duty to work towards the elimination of nuclear weapons which are a worldwide threat to public health

1) by condemning the development, teting, production, deployment, threat, and use of nuclear weapons;

2) by requesting that governments refrain from all these activities and work in good faith for their elimination;

3) by calling for commencement of negotiations for a nuclear weapons convention similar to those for biological and chemical weapons.”
