Climate change remains one of the greatest threats to global public health, and communities that are already vulnerable are being hit the hardest. With extreme heat and weather disasters becoming a regular occurrence around the world, the need for equitable and reliable access to healthcare is more important than ever. There is no overarching solution - having a meaningful and long-lasting impact often requires local insights and tailored approaches to meet the unique needs of different communities.
In this session we’ll discuss:
- How can we advance tangible, community-based approaches to climate adaptation, resilience and care?
- What steps are needed to bolster climate resilience in community healthcare clinics and support frontline healthcare providers to care for patients experiencing climate-related health impacts?
- What role can business leaders, health workers and health equity advocates play in leading the change?
