Climate Change policy

According to you, which health impact due to climate change should be prioritized on the United Nations agenda?

Prioritizing medical products, vaccines and technology


I believe that the United Nations should prioritize medical products, vaccines and technology in regards to climate change initiatives as these 3 factors are the ones that can be somewhat easily done. Easily is stated as compared to the other options such as 'governance/leadership and health financing', these will change on their own through citizen elections in another country, and third parties willing to help but having a stock pile of medical products is in the UN's power to keep these in stock. Medical products, vaccines and technology which can help during a disaster can quickly alleviate people in need preventing future outbreaks while with in the crowded camp. These vaccines can also help with other possible sicknesses that can occur during a disaster such as measles and respiratory diseases.

Prioritizing medical products, vaccines and technology will mean having everything in order, ready to go and efficiently setting up a relief area for individuals in need. We will understand what worked and what didn't work in the past so a speedy relief can occur during these hard times.

New technology, vaccines and medical products will be needed to adequately serve the individuals in need and the United Nation's have great power to stock pile these necessities.
