Report from recent WONCA Executive meeting in Istanbul

WHO call to protect health from climate change

The climate change negotiations (COP-21) will take place soon in Paris.  WHO asks as many as possible to sign the WHO Call to Action on health and climate change and encourage your wider networks, friends, colleagues and other organizations to also sign. 

Climate change has the potential to do serious harm to the health of individuals around the world. But tackling climate change could substantially reduce the risks while also improving human health by, for example, delivering cleaner air and healthier cities.  That’s why WHO is asking you to support the call to action, with the aim at raising awareness of the health opportunities we can realise by tackling climate change now.
