An open letter to political parties and candidates – Australian Election 2019

We are a group of organisations and individuals in the health, social and environment sectors calling on all parties and candidates to publicly recognise the significant and profound health impacts of climate change to Australian people. We need to urgently act to rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and put in place a plan to adapt and build resilience to unavoidable climate change impacts from warming that has already occurred.

Health services in Australia are already experiencing the destructive effects of climate change, which is damaging vital health infrastructure, impacting the health workforce, and putting at risk the ability of some services to continue to provide care for the community.8 these threats will only amplify in the future, putting more lives at risk.
