Message from the Chair
Dr. Michael Kidd, Chair
“The evidence is overwhelming: climate change endangers human health. Solutions exist and we need to act decisively to change this trajectory." These are the words of former director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Margaret Chan in 2014.
Five years later, the stance of the WHO is clear; climate change is the greatest threat to global health in the 21st century, and, as health professionals, we have a duty of care to current and future generations.
