The U.S. Call to Action on Climate, Health, and Equity: A Policy Action Agenda lists ten policy recommendations to provide a roadmap to develop coordinated strategies for simultaneously tackling climate change, health, and equity. Climate change is a public health emergency. We call on our nation’s leaders to act now by mobilizing climate actions for our health, and health actions for our climate. With the right policies and investments today, we have the opportunity to realize our vision of healthy people in healthy places on a healthy planet.
