World Health Day 2022 resources
Today is World Health Day, and the theme this year is our planet, our health. It challenges us to reimagine our economy, society & health for a healthier tomorrow.
To help you take action to protect our planet and our health, we have published two new blogs this week:
- Climate change mitigation and adaptation: a guide for health and care professionals | A bold, united response is required for both climate change mitigation and adaptation; we must reduce our contribution to the climate crisis whilst also creating resilience to respond to its impacts.
