Climate change is one of the gravest threats facing humanity. Pregnant women, newborns and children face distinct risks from climate change-related health impacts, due to a host of physiological, clinical, social and behavioural factors.
Climate change is a growing threat to maternal, newborn and child health that can no longer be ignored. With progress stalling on many fronts, immediate action is needed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on women, newborns and children.
Hard-won advances of the past decades for maternal, newborn and child survival and well-being must be protected to ensure the right to health for all.
