In recent years, health advocacy on climate change has gathered momentum. Until the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015, relatively few health-focused organizations were engaged in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) annual meetings.1 Recently, health organizations have joined global campaigns, initiated their own programmes of work and increased their participation in the UNFCCC. However, this increased activity comes later than that of many other social advocacy groups. The late start of health advocacy on climate change might hinder advocates’ efforts to achieve health-climate actions under the Paris Agreement.
