Global health community calls for urgent action on climate and health at COP28

In the run-up to COP28, the World Health Organization (WHO) together with the global health community, is raising its voice to ensure that the impact of climate change on health takes centre stage in the negotiations. It is imperative to broaden the focus to human health in global discussions, leaving no room for excuses, and compelling negotiators to recognize that they bear the responsibility for the well-being of our most invaluable asset: the health of populations worldwide. https://www.who.int/news/item/27-11-2023-global-health-community-calls-for-urgent-action-on-climate-and-health-at-cop28

              It is encouraging to see the global health community recognizing the urgent need for action on climate and health at COP28. Climate change poses a significant threat to public health, with rising temperatures, extreme weather events, and the spread of infectious diseases. It is crucial that we prioritize efforts to mitigate climate change and adapt to its impacts in order to protect human health.
