New resource: No vaccine for climate change

 

Healthy Energy Initiative India and Health Care Without Harm published a new guide, No vaccine for climate change – A communication guide on climate and health for the healthcare professionals in India, to prepare healthcare workers for conversations around climate change and subsequent health impacts with their patients, communities, and policymakers. 

In addition to covering the basic issues of climate induced impacts on both physical and mental health, the document also provides a template for healthcare professionals to become effective leaders and communicators on the issue. The document prescribes specific actions for potential health related impacts from climate induced disasters, that healthcare professionals could prescribe to their patients, to communities, or to policy makers. It also provides suggestions for health systems.
