Webinar: How prepared is India’s Health sector to lead on climate action and advocacy?

COVID-19 has left an indelible mark on the health sector worldwide. There is no doubt about the need for greater preparedness and increased awareness among health professionals about the risks of climate and environmental impacts on public health. A new study conducted across India among more than 3,000 health professionals reveals the understanding and attitudes of health workers towards the changing environment and what it entails for the sector.

Join us in a webinar organized by Healthy Energy Initiative, Health Care Without Harm and Climate Trends, to discuss the findings of this first-ever survey in India and what this signifies for policy changes and behavior adaptation among health professionals.
