On December 3 2021, the ELLIS project was presented at the IANPHI Annual Meeting, in a session on "Integrating Health Equity into NPHIs’ Climate and Environmental Action".
Climate change, biodiversity loss and other degradations of Earth’s life-supporting systems are a severe threat to the physical and mental well-being of populations worldwide. Their adverse health impacts increase existing health, demographic and socio-economic inequalities, by affecting the most vulnerable populations. The IANPHI Roadmap for Action on Health and Climate Change, launching on November 10, 2021, highlights how NPHIs can identify, prevent and respond to these health impacts.
This session explored how health equity issues can be integrated in NPHIs’ actions on climate, environment and health. Members shared examples of good practices at the national level and discuss ways to act collectively at the international level to jointly address climate change and health inequities.
