The UK and World Health Organization on Monday launched a new health and climate change platform to help countries realize pledges made at last year's UN Climate Change Conference (COP26).

Currently, 60 countries at the health minister level have committed to at least one of the initiatives on climate-resilient and low carbon sustainable health systems promoted under the COP26 Health Program.
