U.K. Health Alliance On Climate Change To ‘Lead By Example’ To Influence Environmental Health Policies

The Lancet: The perfect storm: climate change and its health consequences
Editorial Board

“March 30 saw the launch of the U.K. Health Alliance on Climate Change — a coalition of major U.K. health institutions and The Lancet, who have come together to raise awareness in the U.K. of the health risks posed by climate change. … Climate change is at the root of many health risks, from the increased spread of disease vectors, such as mosquitoes in warmer temperatures, to increased air pollution that increases respiratory diseases, coronary heart disease, and stroke. Heath professionals need to come together and work on these issues, using science to influence and change policy — the Alliance will seek to lead by example” (4/2).
