Climate change directly and indirectly harms health and wellbeing, widening existing inequalities. Climate action is an opportunity to deliver co-benefits for population health, wellbeing and equity. This document sets out 41 high-level actions across three focus areas that PHS will take from 2023 through to 2026. These actions aim to place population health, wellbeing and equity at the heart of climate action and embed climate action in all PHS’s work to improve and protect population health and reduce inequalities.
