[Correspondence] Climate change and health

The Lancet Commission on Health and Climate1 strongly urged the health sector to tackle climate change, especially from a mitigation perspective, which is a step forward from the traditional focus on health sector adaptation. We laud the authors’ portrayal of climate change not just as the “biggest global health threat”,2 but also the “greatest global health opportunity”, terms that resound with both a sense of urgency and optimism, qualities that are the hallmark of global health.
