dc.description.abstractThe recent Editorial by Wakeford (J. Radiol. Prot. 2016 36 E1–E5) titled 'Chernobyl and Fukushima—Where are we now?' has highlighted the scientific achievements and the lessons learnt following two major events: the Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear disasters. The author has undertaken a comprehensive review on the major findings of health impact especially ongoing psychological consequences, the challenge of estimating exposure doses and the importance of routine operational procedures to ensure nuclear safety. Indeed, as the author suggests, international efforts are yet to be made to prevent such rare but severe events. Apart from the above-mentioned subjects, we would also like to raise the importance of not only understanding health risks, but also public risk perception toward nuclear power plants or facilities and incurred risk communication issues in the future.
