Climate Change Impacts on Human Health and the Health Sector

Speeches Shim

Climate change is threatening the sustainability of health systems performance and development goals through increased pressures from rising heat, extreme weather events, droughts, shifts in duration and prevalence of diseases, and the potential for increased novel diseases being introduced. Health systems need to act now by promoting and building capacity for effective and iterative risk management across all levels, fostering multi-sectoral engagement, and identifying actions and investments over the short- and long-term to increase system resilience.
