The Armidale Express: Armidale GP Dr Sujata Allan explains why climate change is the century's greatest health challenge


Dr Sujata Allan says that in her practice, she has already seen the toll a warming planet has taken on her patients.  She states there is widespread concern about global heating among the medical profession, medical colleges, the AMA and other groups, and urges a co-ordinated national strategy to prepare our towns, communities, and health practices for climate change impacts.

Dr Allan says extreme weather events  such as drought, bushfires and heat are a health issue, and tackling the root causes of climate change - the burning of fossil fuels - is vital.

Dr Sujata Allan is an Armidale GP and a member of Doctors for the Environment Australia.
