Video: Climate-smart healthcare for a healthier planet
At COP26 this year we launched the Futures Labs, a series of events to drive systems change for the future. The Labs are focused across six cross-cutting themes, one of which is health. In the health lab, we are reimagining healthcare.
We envisage a future of universally accessible climate-smart healthcare, where we have lowered emissions from the healthcare sector and improved both quality and delivery of healthcare. To build this future, we need multilateral sharing across the development divides to further enhance the innovation and technology we are already seeing today.
