WHO Releases 10-Year Review Report Chapter Focusing On Climate Change, Air Pollution, Antimicrobial Resistance

WHO: A global health guardian: climate change, air pollution, and antimicrobial resistance
This chapter of the WHO’s “Ten years in public health 2007-2017” report focuses on climate change, air pollution, and antimicrobial resistance. “Global defenses against universal transboundary threats to health, like climate change, air pollution, and antimicrobial resistance, depend on WHO’s role as a guardian of public health. This role involves tracking rapidly evolving threats, quantifying the harm to health, and sounding the alarm. WHO also works to raise political awareness and extend advice on the best protective strategies for safeguarding public health. In these — as in many other areas — protective strategies require collaboration with multiple non-health sectors” (May 2017).

The KFF Daily Global Health Policy Report summarized news and information on global health policy from hundreds of sources, from May 2009 through December 2020. All summaries are archived and available via search.
