On day two of RCOG World Congress 2023 (Tuesday 13 June), we were delighted to hold a plenary session on how climate change impacts women’s health globally.
The session was co-chaired by RCOG CEO Kate Lancaster and Professor Peter von Dadleszen and featured FIGO president Jeanne Conry presenting ‘The impact of climate change on women’s health’. It was a highlight of an unforgettable event and generated significant discussion and engagement.
In her talk, Dr Conry talked about the direct impact of climate change on fertility, prenatal outcomes, mental health, sexual health and reproductive rights, as well as our very survival as a species.
A central goal of the College’s five year strategy is to support our membership to respond to the climate crisis and to advocate for a healthier future for women and girls, as such we have made this talk free to access to reach the widest possible audience.
