Sharm El Sheikh, 7 November 2022 (TDI): The World Health Organization (WHO) sent a reminder on the eve of the crucial climate talks at COP27.

It has urged that health must be at the center of these crucial negotiations because the climate catastrophe continues to harm people’s health and endanger lives.

Additionally, it contends that for the conference to be successful, progress must be made in four objectives. These include climate crisis reduction, adaptation, financing, and collaboration.

Moreover, the opportunity to unite and recommit to maintaining the 1.5 °C Paris Agreement objective will be critical during COP27.


The main goal of WHO activities at COPs is to advance health in the negotiations. This can be done by national health representatives’ involvement in national delegations.

Also, by supporting joint advocacy with partners from the NGOs, UN, the academic community, and the private sector on important health issues.

Furthermore, WHO cordially invited media representatives and COP27 attendees to join WHO at several high-level events.

Also, threats of the climate crisis to human health and enormous health benefits that might result from more aggressive climate action will be the topics of discussion.

According to Dr. Tedros Adhanom, Director-General of WHO, “Climate change is making millions of people sick or vulnerable to disease.

The increasing destructiveness of weather events negatively affects poor and marginalized groups.” At COP27, leaders and decision-makers must work together to prioritize health in all discussions.

WHO agenda for COP27

At COP27, the WHO will lead two events. These include the UN High-Level Side Event on the Alliance for Transformative Action on Climate and Health (ATACH) and the Global Youth Forum on Health and Climate Change.

To build on the accomplishments of last year, WHO, in this regard, will organize a Health Pavilion at COP27. Over two weeks, more than 40 activities will be held at the Health Pavilion, showcasing strong climate action.
