DOH-8 spearheads climate change forum

by Gemma Tabao

Tacloban City (1 September) -- Faced with the alarming effects of climate change and other human health problems, the Department of Health has started putting all these concerns to the forefront of discussions.

In the region, climate change and health forum was recently conducted at the Leyte Park Hotel in the city, which was participated in by health workers and representatives from different line agencies all over Eastern Visayas.

Given focus during the day was the influence of human activities on nature in a detrimental manner, putting emphasis on how to avoid these unnecessary behavioral ways attributed to the changing temperatures and other climactic reactions.

With the human health at the heart of climate change policies, different approaches for climate change adaptation and preparedness were likewise presented, as well as response activities which the government could easily implement.

Relative to the menace, the Department of Health in collaboration with partner agencies has also developed health strategies and is committed to develop and implement national action plan on adaptation and mitigation of climate change.

With the given challenge, all government service providers are expected to integrate the concept of climate change in all activities, so as to reduce the devastating effects of the global problem and consequently avoid the reign of diseases and death in the human race. (PIA8) [top]
