This was the first NWIP delegation to Iran and was a follow-up to the last visit the Swedish affiliate of IPPNW (SLMK) made to Tehran 20-23rd of January 2007. Our host in Iran was students and doctors from SCVWS – Society for Chemical Weapons Victims Support, who is on their way of forming a suborganisation so called PSR Iran that will become the iranian affiliate of IPPNW. During the last visit, the Iranian students showed great interest in starting up local activities in Tehran.
