A-bomb survivors and many others have long pointed to the inhumanity of nuclear weapons, which is greatly influencing the international campaign to abolish those weapons. The Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, held in Oslo, Norway, in March 2013, featured reports on the medical effects of nuclear bombs and the experiences of the survivors. Many countries confirmed that they lack any ability to respond effectively to a nuclear attack. In April that year, a "Joint Statement on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons" was introduced by South Africa and endorsed by 80 countries. It clearly stated that nuclear weapons must never to be used again, under any circumstances, and the only way to ensure that is to eliminate them.
