Health action for climate and climate action for health
The Global Climate and Health Forum brought together 300 leaders from national and local governments, health systems, public health agencies, civil society, and international health organizations to build the community of climate and health professionals, share global success stories of health action for climate, and generate momentum and commitments for action on climate and health.
The Forum, which highlighted the commitments of health sector leaders worldwide to reduce carbon pollution and build healthy, resilient communities, culminated in the launch of a Call to Action on Climate and Health. This Call to Action, endorsed by over 70 leading health organizations, outlines ten priority recommendations the health community can take to advance human well-being in the era of climate change.
The Forum was organized by the Global Climate and Health Alliance, the Global Health Group at UCSF's Institute for Global Health Sciences, Health Care Without Harm, and the US Climate and Health Alliance.
