Now online! In this report, we share the activities and campaigns that have contributed to CAHA further developing its national and international reputation for leading a dynamic agenda of advocacy on climate and health issues – underscored by a high level of professionalism and scientific rigour.
The Climate and Health Alliance has helped kick-started a sustainable healthcare agenda by co-hosting the Greening the Healthcare Sector Think Tank with AHHA; helped launch the Global Green and Healthy Hospitals Network in Australia with Health Care Without Harm; released an important report with the Climate Institute – Our Uncashed Dividend: The Health Benefits of Climate Action; and led the development of a global statement on climate and health: the Doha Declaration – signed by hundreds of organisations representing millions of health professional around the world, calling for health to be prioritised in global and national responses to climate change.
Our first ever! The Climate and Health Alliance has accomplished a great deal in its first year.
We’ve been to Canberra and to Durban, got some of the country’s most significant healthcare stakeholders on board, produced some important papers and shared lots of resources on climate and health, distributed our newsletter to hundreds of subscribers, influenced the advocacy of other groups with the ‘health’ message, inspired others to take action, and established important partnerships with other stakeholders.
