RACP launches new climate change position statements
14 Nov 2016
The RACP has today launched three new position statements on climate change and health.
Developed by the RACP’s Climate Change and Health Working Party, the evidence-based position statements outline the College’s stance on the health impacts of climate change, the benefits of taking action to mitigate climate change and the need for an environmentally sustainable healthcare system.
Released during the United Nations Marrakech Climate Change Conference (COP22), the RACP’s position statements are a timely contribution to the global discussion on the health impacts of climate change.
The RACP is recognised as a leader on climate change and health, and a part of the growing medical movement calling for urgent climate action for the good of human health.
The position statements follow from the College’s successful Doctors for Climate Action campaign of 2015.
