Uniting the World to Tackle Climate Change is the title of the two-week United Nations Climate Change Conference otherwise known as COP 26, which concludes in Glasgow on November 12. In this live event co-hosted by the Irish Doctors for the Environment and the Irish Global Health Network, as we launch the latest annual report of the Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change, we reflect on the implications of the climate crisis on health and healthcare systems in the context of the UN conference.

With rising global temperatures and increasing environmental instability, humans are almost certainly facing catastrophic planetary and health effects. It is ever more crucial that the themes of sustainability, climate change and ecological instability are integrated into healthcare systems. What is the role of the healthcare sector as the world prepares pathways to achieve net zero emissions by mid century and limit global warming to 1.5 degrees C? We hear from health professionals who have devoted their work to environmental issues.
