Bonn | Health Care Call to Action on Climate Change

As leaders of hospitals and health systems from all around the world, we are deeply concerned by the threat that climate change poses to the health of our patients, their communities and the planet we inhabit.

As the world’s governments prepare to meet in Bonn, Germany this November (2017) to continue to build on the Paris Agreement, we call on our colleagues in hospitals, health systems and ministries of health, as well as manufacturers of medications, medical devices and supplies around the world, to join us in embracing climate-smart health care by taking action to reduce our carbon footprint, build greater health system resiliency, and generate leadership from our sector in protecting public and planetary health from climate change.
