The BMJ Podcast: Climate change will make universal health coverage precarious

IMG_20191002_193525_105.jpg

This week’s podcast relates to the @bmj_company article in partnership with the Harvard Global Health Institute @harvard_globalhealth I did a post on over the weekend “Climate change threatens achievement of effective universal healthcare”. This podcast covers two of topics I am super interested in, public health and climate change. Discussed is how climate presents additional challenges to achieving universal health care (UHC) & how climate change alters the patterns of both communicable & non communicable disease. They provide anecdotes of how countries with the goal of UHC need to consider the effects of climate change in their plans & policies.
