Founded in 1982, Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) unites approximately 1000 Finnish professional and student physicians, dentists and veterinarians. The aim of PSR is to raise physicians’ awareness of ethical and social matters concerning the whole of mankind, and promote safe livelihoods, equality and peace. In addition to being non-partisan, PSR is independent of companies and other commercial entities that could endanger the professional integrity of physicians, and does not accept support from the medical industry. PSR is a part of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW), as well as Health Action International Europe Association (HAI).
