16th September 2022
Healthy climate prescription letter from health professionals delivered to world leaders at COP26

In a powerful letter delivered during COP26, the world’s health community called on world leaders to take real action to put the world on a path that protects people from catastrophic climate change. The “Healthy Climate Prescription” letter, which had the signatures of tens of thousands of health organisations and individuals was a move by the international health community who are already responding to the health harms caused by climate change.

In the letter, health professionals say fundamental changes to the way we live are needed to prevent a prolonged health crisis as a direct consequence of climate change.
