Doctors from around the world unite to call for urgent climate action

Global health bodies are demanding international governments urgently phase out fossil fuels and fast-track renewable energy as health professionals increasingly see patients suffering from harm caused by climate change. The world’s leading GP and health bodies, representing more than three million health professionals worldwide, will deliver an open letter on Saturday calling for urgent action against climate change to protect the health of communities. “We the family doctors, doctors and health professionals of the world call on world leaders to take urgent action to safeguard the health of global populations from the climate crisis,” the open letter reads. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/oct/28/doctors-from-around-the-world-unite-to-call-for-urgent-climate-action.

        Hi, Rotich Kim. Thanks for posting a climate review on our platform. However, this review should not be directed to the company Global Health, but to the initiators of this open letter or to one of the organizations that signed it. The idea behind our climate reviews is to make companies and organizations aware that they could (and should) do better. If enough people agree to your review, we will contact the company and ask them to join the climate dialogue. Read more here: https://www.wedonthavetime.org/our-community#guide

          Climate change is impacting health in a myriad of ways, including by leading to death and illness from increasingly frequent extreme weather events, such as heatwaves, storms and floods.

                        Reaching at a point where doctors are advocating for climate action something really needs to be done ... Many respiratory deficiencies result due to climate change...

                          @chris_ngatia true in many regions, the warming climate is making air quality worse. Poorer air quality contributes to or may cause breathing problems and respiratory illnesses.
