Climate Change and Health

Forum Panel – 75mn

An understanding of the devastating impacts that climate change will have, and is already having, on human health is growing among the scientific community, with many recent reports categorizing climate change as a public health emergency.

Yet, we have not seen health system leaders and health professionals playing a sufficiently prominent role as advocates for climate change mitigation and adaptation. The Climate Change and Health forum panel will review missed opportunities and how we can go on to leverage some of the most trusted voices in society.
