NEW: More than 100 Health Professionals and Organizations Support Recommendations on Climate, Health & Equity for HHS

By Rebecca Rehr

Climate for Health joined over 100 health professionals and organizations to support a set of recommendations to build climate, health, and equity across the Department of Health and Human Services. These build on an earlier set of Administration-wide recommendations on climate, health, and equity which gained broad support from health organizations and were well received. This new set of recommendations is directed specifically to HHS. It addresses functions such as research (e.g., at the National Institutes of Health), public health protection (e.g., at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), health care resilience (e.g. at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services), and incorporation of health into the nation’s nationally determined contributions under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

You can read the full set of recommendations and endorse the recommendations here.
