As Australia and the world continues to feel the effects of climate change, a greater focus is being applied to the impact the changing climate is having on people’s health and the way that healthcare is delivered.

During the COP28 UN Climate Change Conference in Dubai at the end of last year, the Australian Government launched its National Health and Climate Strategy. The strategy sets out a whole-of-government plan to address the health and wellbeing impacts of climate change.

Join Consumers Health Forum and a panel of experts as we discuss the government’s strategy and the impact we are already seeing of climate change on people’s health and the healthcare system.
