On September 17, 2023, health professionals from around the world called governments to commit to an accelerated, just and equitable phase-out of fossil fuels as a decisive path to health for all ahead of this Climate Ambition Summit on September 20.

Dozens of doctors, nurses and other professionals working in the health sector joined tens of thousands of marchers outside the New York headquarters of the United Nations during The March to End Fossil Fuels. A “HealthHub” organised by Physicians for Social Responsibility Pennsylvania and the Global Climate and Health Alliance brought together health professionals and health workers to participate in the march – clad in their scrubs and lab coats.
