Low-Carb Health Care

Hospitals focused on saving lives undermine their mission with their excessive waste and contributions to harmful fossil fuel emissions, writes Pats Oliva of Health Care Without Harm Asia.
 
“Hospitals contribute to climate change, and climate change is threatening to undo the last 50 years of gains in public health,” she says, making the case that hospitals in Asia need to work toward low-carbon health care.
 
That means steps like turning off unused lights, rainwater catchment in health facilities, bans on single-use plastics, and implementing sustainable health care waste management.
