Climate change and human health

WHO conference on health and climate

When: 27–29 August 2014
Where: WHO Headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland

Since 2008 the WHO has shown leadership in raising awareness of the threats posed by climate change to health. Specifically, WHO has provided evidence, technical guidance and piloted approaches to protect health from climate risks.
There is now an urgent need to advance a more concrete and systematic approach to implementing health protection, led by the health community, in coordination with others.
