Resource Description: 

In this review of 49 clinical guidelines from British, Chinese, Indian, Brazilian, Australian, European, German, and US-American medical associations, the authors found keywords related to planetary health (eg, climate change, air pollution, and emissions) were found in fewer than 5%. 

The authors argue that all medical guidelines should include a strategy that systematically addresses planetary health issues. They have compiled a panel to show in what areas of guidelines the planetary health dimension -  equity, human rights, gender, and social determinants of health - should be considered.
