Why we can not know for sure how many nuclear weapons there are in the world and how much money the nuclear weapon states spend on their nuclear weapons?

Nuclear weapons are mostly based on secrecy. The nuclear weapon states do not want to say exactly how many warheads they have in their nuclear arsenals because of confidentiality. It’s about military secrets and countries security.

Who is behind the website?

Learn about nuclear weapons owned by the organization Swedish Physicians against Nuclear Weapons. We was founded in 1981 and is a non-profit and politically independent organization with nearly 3,000 physicians and medical students as members. Swedish Physicians against Nuclear weapons are part of the World Federation of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, IPPNW, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985.

Our main purpose is to spread knowledge about nuclear weapons medicinal effects as well as through scientific research contribute to this knowledge. The goal is to strengthen public opinion against nuclear weapons, so that nuclear war is prevented. We therefore work with information, advocacy and lobbying against the public, decision makers and the media.
