Health policy implications of climate change

What are  the implications for health as the climate continues to change - both in the UK and elsewhere?  What should the health policy response be to changes in climate, and how do we build this into our plans for a low carbon future? In this event, we will explore these issues, and how the UK Government can respond to them.
