"Climate change is the biggest health threat of the 21st century"


For those of us working on climate and health, it's a well worn phrase. We use it when we talk to the government, to the public, to health sector colleagues. We try to invoke a sense of urgency because the reality of climate change is today. For many of us in recent years, we've experienced the climate crisis right outside our window or in the air we breathe or talking to our kids about the future.

That's why we are celebrating the thematic inclusion of health at this year's COP. This year will feature the first ever Health Day and Ministerial. This victory follows years of advocacy by some persistent – and noisy – health advocates (including CAHA staff and members).
