Climate change threatens the achievement of effective universal healthcare

07 Ottobre 2019

Key messages

  • Climate change is threatening to undermine the achievement of universal health care (UHC) through negative health outcomes and healthcare system disruptions
  • Climate change and UHC agendas bolster each other as they both strive to improve health and achieve health equity
  • Many regions of the world with the highest vulnerability to climate change are also those with the lowest UHC coverage. These regions stand to have enormous gains through an integrated approach
  • UHC plans should work to improve the understanding of climate change, use novel climate sensitive financial frameworks, and incorporate the mitigation of greenhouse gases
  • They should strive for evidence based climate adaptation that protects health and prioritise health system climate resiliency
