Doctors around the globe tackle climate change and fossil fuels

On December 4, 2015, the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL), the French Medical Council (CNOM), the World Medical Association (WMA) and the International Federation of Medical Students’ Association (IFMSA) organized in the CNOM headquarters in Paris the event “Health professionnals in action for Healthy Energy and Climate”. Public health advocates from all around the world had the opportunity to share their success stories on health protection and climate change and air pollution mitigation.

The press release of the event is available in English here and all the event documents are available on the HEAL website. Watch the video of the event here. In addition, the French Medical Council has recently issued a webzine on health and climate change promoting the positive effects on health of the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
