During COP28, over 40 key thinkers and leaders from international organizations, government agencies, health systems, and civil society participated in a roundtable session to discuss how to accelerate health care climate action. The discussion focused on the pivotal current moment and future prospects for health care decarbonization and resilience, including the role of prevention as a mitigation strategy, acknowledging and addressing North-South complexity, and building an evidence base, tools, and technical capacity.

The roundtable was convened by Health Care Without Harm, in collaboration with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) High Level Champions Race to Zero, and was sponsored by Bupa and CommonSpirit Health.
