The health impacts of global climate change on maternal and child health can no longer be ignored. To illustrate the problem and the solutions at hand, HEAL partnered with the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to launch an easy-to-use infographic for health advocates and policy-makers.

The infographic and supporting social media materials launched today give an overview of the ways in which climate change can increase health risks to pregnant women and their children, and are available in 9 languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Bosnian and Serbian.

This infographic is the first in a new series on environmental health and pregnancy. Subsequent editions will be published by HEAL, FIGO and USCF in summer and autumn 2020.
