Marie Stopes International Australia has contributed to a report by the Global Health Alliance about the impact of climate change on the health of Australians and those living in surrounding regions.

The report found that climate crisis has an disproportionate affect on the health of women. There is evidence that advancing women’s reproductive
rights improves health outcomes not only for women but for entire communities, reducing poverty and allowing for sustainable population growth.

Enabling women as active participants will improve efforts to develop climate adaptive programs relating to health, energy, water, trade and agriculture.
