[Correspondence] Can the scientific world positively influence decision makers on planetary health?

The 2017 G7 Health Ministerial Meeting was on Nov 5–6, in Milan, Italy, and for the first time the effect of climate and environmental factors on health was addressed in the agenda of the meeting. As reported in the final Health Ministers communiquè after the meeting (signed by all seven countries),1 the delegation agreed to identify and promote some fundamental adaptation actions. In addition to the novelty of these subjects being in the agenda and in the final meeting documents, we believe the process that led to these outcomes is innovative and interesting.
