Health Care

The Health Care Working Group convenes representatives of organisations, businesses and institutions that support the practice and delivery of healthcare services, including healthcare providers, public health advocates, researchers, insurers and unions.

We need to use our roles as clinicians and the trust that we have in our communities to carry that message forward, and become activists in climate change and health," Dr Simon Judkins, Emergency Physician.

Together they are amplifying leading voices in health care that are working to make a zero emissions health sector a reality in Australia today. 

The group hosted 'Better, Healthier Futures,' in December 2020. View the recording below.
