As AFMW President and Chair AFMW Climate Health Action Group (CHAG), I’m thrilled to announce that AFMW now has a signed a memorandum of understanding with the Doctors For the Environment Australia (DEA).
In this article, originally shared via the Climate and Health Alliance in Australia, the CAHA are delighted to launch their new communications guide for health professionals, Real, Urgent and Now: Communicating the Health Impacts of Climate Change.
Here are six practical measures doctors can take, and can encourage their patients to take, which will have a positive impact on emissions and climate change while also improving health outcomes.
UPDATE. New members to the AFMW CHAG welcome PLUS discover 6 Practice Tips to help decarbonize our planet. The AFMW is proud to be a member of the Better Futures Australia Health Working Group, which includes representatives from Doctors for the Environment Australia, Australasian College for Emergency Medicine, Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association, NSW Nurses and Midwives’ Association, and Climate and Health Alliance.
