Dr Kate WylieMay 2024

Dr Kate Wylie is a GP and the executive director of Doctors for the Environment Australia (DEA), a not-for-profit advocacy organisation that recognises that human health depends upon a healthy environment.

Based in Adelaide, Dr Wylie’s work centres on the need for emissions reduction and the protection of biodiversity in order to protect human health and on the need for sustainability in health care.

A skilled media commentator, Dr Wylie has spoken on television and radio and provided comment for written media on the health impacts of climate change and what we can do to protect ourselves from harm. 

Dr Wylie is the immediate past chair of the RACGP’s Climate and Environmental Medicine Specific Interest Group, elevating the need for climate action with GPs across Australia.

She is a previous chair of DEA and is the founder of Climate Medicine, an advocacy project whereby she presents to community groups on the health effects of climate change.

 In all her work, Dr Wylie applies a medical model to the climate crisis and as such offers a treatment plan for climate change. She seeks to activate her audience so they can help create the paradigm shift that we need to combat the climate crisis. 

Our planet is worth saving, and so are we.”
