WHO – WMO Joint Climate and Health Programme

The World Health Organization (WHO) and World Meteorological Organization (WMO) are working together to advance integrated climate and health sciences and services to better protect human health from climate change, extreme weather and climate, water, air quality, solar radiation, and other environmental hazards. 

By working together, WHO and WMO are strengthening, harmonizing and leveraging resources and opportunities to empower and support Member States and partners through interagency cooperation. 

The WHO-WMO Joint Office for Climate & Health, together with the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), spearheads the Global Heat Health Information Network; an independent, voluntary, and member-driven forum of scientists, practitioners, and policy makers focused on improving capacity to protect populations from the avoidable health risks of extreme heat in a changing climate. Its members represent diverse technical domains and all populated continents.
