Global | 2015 Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change

Lancet2015 coverToday, globally renowned medical journal the Lancet released the 2015 Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change: Policy Responses to Protect Public Health, an update to the landmark 2009 Lancet Commission report. This new report argues that tackling climate change could be the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century, an opportunity that now requires political will to realize.

The report’s policy recommendations range from cities supporting lifestyles for healthy people and planet, to an international agreement to transition to a low-carbon economy; and from phasing out coal and fossil fuel subsidies in the energy sector, to scaling up research and financing in the health sector.

Coverage in the media has been widespread. Below is a collection of recommended resources on the 2015 Lancet Commission from Health Care Without Harm and our global partners.
