The George Institute joins call for action on climate

The George Institute for Global Health has joined over 55 health organisations in writing an open letter to the Prime Minister urging the Australian Government for stronger action on climate. “As health experts, we are extremely concerned about the effects climate change is having on human health” said Professor Christine Jenkins, Head of Respiratory at The George Institute. “We are particularly concerned about how changes in our climate can worsen the already alarming impact of non-communicable diseases in our community. The George Institute is proud to be coming together with our health sector colleagues to ask the Government to take immediate and strong action on climate for a healthier future.”
