The RACP is proud to announce the release of three new position statements on climate change and health which you will find attached.

 

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.

 

The release of the position statements coincided with the launch of The Lancet’s new international research collaboration The Lancet Countdown which will monitor progress to 2030 of climate policies that promote health.
