Key communications on climate-related topics.

As Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) responds to health crises in more than 70 countries, our teams see firsthand the suffering caused or exacerbated by climate change and environmental degradation, most often experienced by people who are the most vulnerable to these effects.

We are witnessing how climate change directly threatens health – for example, through death and injury due to extreme weather – and how climate change indirectly impacts health, through food insecurity and shifting patterns of climate-sensitive infectious diseases.

Recognizing the role of the climate emergency in amplifying humanitarian needs, we are adapting our operations to be more responsive to the people most affected, while also facing up to the challenges of measuring and reducing our own environmental footprint.
